Two members of the Fleetwood Chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America earned national recognition from FBLA-PBL, Inc. This recognition was achieved as part of the Business Achievement Awards Program. The Business Achievements Awards are intended to complement academic achievement while enhancing a student's leadership skills through a self-directed online curriculum. A heavy emphasis is placed on education and includes integrated classroom projects as well as critical thinking exercises. This recognition includes a four-tier system that focuses on the four components of FBLA: Future, Business, Leader, and America.
Senior Branden Green earned the Future Level Award and was rewarded with a certificate of recognition and a pin. This first level of the award focuses on basic business skills, community service activities, and FBLA involvement at the local chapter level. Senior Demi Rissmiller earned both the Future Level Award and the Business Level Award. This second level emphasizes local, regional, state, and national involvement; advanced business skills; and community leadership. She was also awarded with a certificate of recognition and a pin for each award earned. Only seven other schools in Pennsylvania had students awarded with the Business Level Award.
The Fleetwood Chapter is proud of these two students and their outstanding accomplishments during the 2011 – 2012 school year.
