Stroudsburg continues to succeed at FBLA State Conference

Delaney Burke
Stroudsburg’s FBLA members wait to view the results of the state competition.

Stroudsburg’s chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) continues to gain recognition after the previous successes at the regional level.

The FBLA state conference took place from April 7 to April 10, 2024, where students competed in specific events. On top of that, it allowed members to make connections with students from different schools, learn from mentors, and gain important leadership skills.

Stroudsburg’s chapter, consisting of 185 members, received many awards, including 1st place for Largest Local Chapter and 3rd place for Most Community Service Hours with 1,975.25 hours.

Leyla Yilmaz, 10, also received third place in the state for individual volunteer hours totaling 207 hours. 

FBLA is built off of three key pillars – service, education, and progress – and its mission focuses on inspiring and preparing community-minded business leaders.

Helping students with service experiences, Stroudsburg’s FBLA has worked with members of the community for years to create these special opportunities.

According to Jodie Haggerty, FBLA advisor and business teacher at Stroudsburg, “Each of the advisers before me established amazing community connections and we continue to build on those each year. However, many of our members are able to complete volunteer hours through their own connections such as Scouts, Church groups, and other clubs they participate in.”

In addition to our chapter recognition, 23 members placed in the top 10 of their events with four of those members qualifying for Nationals.

    Kudo’s to all of our Stroudsburg students and may you continue to prosper! When I was your age I was the President of VICA Vocational Industrial Clubs of America for five schools and represented (via Vo-Tech) our County! I want each of you to remember NOT to fold to peer pressure to ‘Party’, drug and alcohol usage took me off track by just ONE friends influence! I otherwise would’ve reached other business like ventures after graduation, walk away and say no because it’s a lifetime choice so pay attention don’t dabble! I pray you all the best and Stroudsburg residents are very proud of each and everyone one of you I’m certain!❤️✝️🙏🇺🇸 #sharireneechambers
