2:45 PM - 3:30 PM Faculty Meeting - WHS Cafeteria
The 57th annual Future Business Leaders of America State Leadership Conference was held March 15-17th, 2017, at the Waterfront Convention Center at Harrah’s Casino and Resort in Atlantic City. Sixteen students from Woodstown High School attended the conference along with approximately 2,400 other students from across the state of New Jersey. The theme was “New Jersey FBLA-PBL: Portraits of Success”. Students participated in many activities, including workshops, campaign and election of state officers (two WHS students ran for state officer positions), a dance, and an awards banquet. The students also competed in several different business events. Bridget McGuigan and Kiesa Dickson competed in an open event at the conference in which they had to create a video about Career and Technical Education and Perkins Funding from a government perspective. They earned 1st place for their video! Also finishing in 1st place was Nick Sorantino for the Electronic Career Portfolio event, which was an amazing accomplishment. Finishing in 3rd place was Jake Rattigan for Impromptu Speaking. He finished in the top 10 out of 46 for the preliminary round and then finished 3rd in the final round. Nick and Jake now have the opportunity to advance to the national level which takes place in Anaheim, CA June 29-July 2, 2017. Summer Henderson was selected by Cybis Communications, a live event & creative media production company, for the Cybis Production Internship at the conference. The internship was a unique opportunity to participate in the many aspects of show production, including stage management, cameras & projection, and lighting & sound. Jessica Landolfi was elected as NJ State FBLA President for 2017-2018. She is the first WHS student to be elected as an FBLA president. She will be representing NJ FBLA at the National Conference in Anaheim this summer. Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda, Inc.
