The Daniel Boone High School Future Businesses Leaders of America competed against nine other Berks County schools in their regional competition on Dec. 18 demonstrating leadership skills in business and computers.
Of our 28 members, 17 were able to compete and gave quite a showing. This was the Boone FBLA's most successful showing ever in terms of awards but their spirit of encouragement was even more wonderful to see as the true Boone spirit was exemplified. Thank you to our teachers, administrators and school board for helping these future business leaders excel!
