Ozark High School FBLA participated in the virtual District Leadership Conference Feb. 1-19 where 17 students qualified to participate in State.
“The kids showed a lot of effort putting in time to compete in their events through virtual platforms. This was definitely a strange situation but Ozark was represented well by these students,” said Matt Fevold, OHS FBLA advisor.
FBLA — Future Business Leaders of America — is a career student business organization designed to “inspire and prepare students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences,” according to the FBLA website.
