Local students ready for FBLA nationals

KINGMAN - The two school districts in the city will be sending nine students to the Future Business Leaders of America national competition in June.

The students were among 11 who won awards at the FBLA state competition April 13-15 in Tucson. They will be going to the national competition from June 27 to July 3 in Nashville. The remaining two students aren't able to attend the event.

Kingman Unified School District sent 28 participants to the state competition this year, compared to two entrants last year. Both went on to the national competition but did not win at the event.

"The increased number of winners going on to nationals this year means our program here is preparing us for the world of business as we leave high school," said Lane Pelham, a Kingman High School senior and president of FBLA. "Because we took these classes, we were able to competently compete at the state level."

KHS students going on to nationals are Pelham, first in Computer Applications and second in Database Design; Haley Anderson, third in Accounting II; Charles Van Vliet, third in Computer Problem Solving; Jack Nix, first in Database Design and second in Microsoft Office Specialist Event; Selena Leon Vega, first in Job Interview; and Ammah Billington and Ana Harter, both fourth in Entrepreneurship.

Dominic Brown, who won a first in Microsoft Office Specialist event, will not be attending.

Kingman Academy of Learning, which had 16 participants at the state level this year, is sending Riley Hammerling, first in Introduction to Parliamentary Procedures; and Charlie St. Clair, second in Personal Finance, to the nationals. Noah Lucier, who won a second in Computer Problem Solving, third in Cyber Security and fourth in Help Desk, will not be attending.

"This is a big deal," said Nicole Suchowierski, advisor to the FBLA at KAOL. "Participating in the competition teaches them to prepare for events like this and gives them a chance to represent the school district, the city and the state. They're actually getting to use everything they've learned here."
