Stillman Valley High School holds FBLA ceremony


STILLMAN VALLEY – On Thursday, Oct. 10, Stillman Valley FBLA held its 4th annual Induction Ceremony.

FBLA was founded at Stillman in the spring of 2016. FBLA is the largest business organization in the U.S. with over 250,000 student members. The Induction Ceremony inducted FBLA officers and members into the organization. Friends and family were invited to attend the ceremony.

After the ceremony ended, all enjoy pizza from Father & Sons. Parents had the opportunity to meet with the Stillman Valley advisers to find out how they could become more involved in FBLA as well as find out information about the coming events and competition. Members gathered over pizza to learn about the FBLA March of Dimes fundraiser. FBLA members will be selling chocolate covered pretzels for $2 in order to raise money for March of Dimes. All proceeds go to March of Dimes. FBLA has partnered up with March of Dimes to help raise money as well as create awareness over prenatal care and birthing complications. Members also had to time to talk and to learn more about each other over pizza.

Congratulations to the following members:  Michael Cavenagh, President, Logan Apsey, Vice President, Tyler Kubiszewski, Secretary, Richie Sutliff, Historian, Jesus Arias, Web Master, Natalia Contizano, Taylor Aidan, Doga Ozkawa, Maddie Straka, Lilly Drake, Genesis Myers, Martin Martinez-Vasquez, Amanda King, and Kaitlyn Haymes.
