17 OHS Students Qualify for State FBLA

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.
