FBLA Nationals #4
2017

More than 12,000 of America's best and brightest youth traveled to southern California to make some sunshine of their own as they showcased their talents as future business leaders and vied for the opportunity to win over $95,000 in cash awards.

Three Douglasville area high school students from Chapel Hill High School- Myles Davis, Khalil Edmondson, and Cory Raxton - qualified to compete and represent their school on a national stage.

Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda, the largest and oldest student business organization, held its National Leadership Conference from June 28 to July 2 in Anaheim, California.

Participants from across the United States and three countries were in attendance for this exciting conference to sharpen their core business skills, expand their networks and participate in over 55 business and business-related competitive events. In addition to the competitions, students immersed themselves in educational workshops, visited exhibits and attended motivational speeches on a broad range of business topics.

Myles Davis, Khalil Edmondson, and Cory Raxton, upcoming seniors, competed at the national level in Business Ethics. They had to research the ethical issues of social media platform checks in relation to employment and compose a six minute speech to perform in front of judges. They first competed in a preliminary round against 115 other teams from across the country. The top 16 finalists then competed in the performance finals. The Chapel Hill team placed fourth overall at the FBLA Awards of Excellence program.

“I am so proud of my students. They have been very successful in FBLA and worked very hard preparing for this. They competed last year in the same event, but did not make it to Nationals. I am so happy they were able to go this year. I know they all have a bright future ahead of them,” said FBLA Adviser Kristin Caverly.

The students are looking forward to next year’s National Competition which will take place in Baltimore, MD.
