Another Successful FBLA Conference

A trip that unforgettably went smoothly for the Future Business Leaders of America, took place on February 8, 2020 at Redwood High School in Visalia, CA.  The members of this organization didn't leave empty handed, according to President Paola Garcia who said, "It went very well and a lot of us placed.  We have about ten moving to state, including myself.  There's Mark, Parneet, Gurnoor, Karanbir, Chelsea, Rick, etc."  Her parter in crime, Cassandra Mangohig and FBLA Vice-President state, "I didn't place but I won a laptop!"  So even with what could be a loss, there was a silver lining.  The members left Visalia victorious and ready to enter state.
