PM students qualify for national FBLA conference

Congrats to Penn Manor students Jordan Wakefield and Cameron Steele, who have qualified to compete in the national Future Business Leaders of America conference in Atlanta this summer.

The two Penn Manor High School seniors qualified for the national competition by placing fifth this week in the Entrepreneurship category of the FBLA State Leadership Conference in Hershey.

The students took an online test Monday that qualified them as one of the top 10 teams in Pennsylvania. They then had to prepare a seven-minute presentation in response to a case study involving the opening of a new restaurant near a college campus.

Jordan and Cameron had to address several issues in their impromptu response before the judges, including start-up costs, loan terms, staffing and wages, advertising and food wait times. Their fifth-place finish qualified them for the National FBLA Leadership Conference in Atlanta June 27 to July 3.

Also competing in this week’s state conference was the Penn Manor FBLA Marketing team of Jeremy Miller, Joey Cadmus and Ryan Miller.

Best wishes on your future endeavors!
