On February 3rd, DeForest Area High School FBLA members competed at the 2018 Region V Leadership Conference in Sun Prairie. As a whole, the team placed 2nd out of several other schools in the surrounding area. Also, 30 of those students will be moving on to compete at the State Leadership Conference in April.
“Our Chapter has improved every year under their (the senior classes’) leadership,” said FBLA Director and high school business teacher Christopher Smith. In 2015, DeForest FBLA placed 5th at Regionals, and this year, they took 2nd place. “It’s incredible to see all of their hard work and dedication to our local chapter pay off!” exclaimed Smith.
