Eight WCCC students headed to state FBLA
Eight local students will be headed to the state level Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) competition this April.
Warren County Career Center (WCCC) students tested into the FBLA competition online, according to advisor Beth Hornick.
Out of 11 students who tested in from Region One, which includes Collegiate Academy, Corry Area High School, General McLane, Fort LeBoeuf, Northwestern, and Warren, eight advanced to the state competition, which is scheduled for April 8 – 11 in Hershey, Pa.
Advancing to states were: Jenny Johnson, who got second place in Business Communications; Michal Shingler, who took second place in Personal Finance; Bailey Brucker, who took first place in Computer Problem Solving; Joshua Frazier, who took second place in Computer Problem Solving; Lucas Moore, who took first place in Cyber Security; Samuel Hoover, who took third place in Cyber Security; Autumn Ferry, who took second place in Healthcare Administration; and Ryan Zavinski, who took third place in journalism. The top three students at the state competition will advance to nationals.
“I am so proud of all the students who competed,” said Hornick. “These students compete against Collegiate Academy and General McLane, powerhouses of FBLA Region One, and huge schools. Warren County Career Center can compete against them and definitely hold their own. We are their competition.”
