On Saturday, February 7th, fourteen St. Croix Central students participated in the FBLA Region 1 Leadership Conference in Park Falls, WI. FBLA, Future Business Leaders of America, is a student organization that allows students to utilize concepts learned in school that relate to all aspects of business. SCC FBLA Advisors Nicholas Haug and Tracie Crowley would like to recognize the following students:

St. Croix Central FBLA would like to congratulate these students for their dedication to SCC FBLA and for an outstanding performance at RLC. Students placing in the top three for their event will move on to the State Leadership Conference being held in La Crosse, WI on April 13th and 14th. Any students that place in the top three at State will move on to the National Leadership Conference in Chicago, IL.
SCC FBLA would also like to extend a special thank you to Hackman Town & Country for their support and willingness to act as an extension of our school store. By Hackman Town & Country serving as our alternate location, our FBLA Chapter was able to raise enough money to offset the cost of RLC for our students and allow them to not have any financial burden this year.
If you would like any additional information on FBLA, please visit FBLA.org for information on the national organization or fbla.dpi.wi.gov for information about the Wisconsin division.
