State FBLA Conference
April 15-17, 2010
MCHS FBLA students traveled to Louisville, KY to participate in state FBLA activities. These students observed competitions in Business Presentations, Public Speaking II & Entrepreneurship. While in Louisville we also visited Kosairs Children's Hospital to learn more about how we could volunteer our services for the benefit of the children admitted there.
 
 
Region 2 FBLA Conference
February 25, 2010
An unexpected snow day cancelled school in Metcalfe County and interrupted our hopes of participating in competitive events for the first time. However FBLA members, Brooke Milton, Jeremy Austin, Callie Jessie & Lauren Logsdon opted not to enjoy the opportunity to sleep in and found their own transportation to Western Kentucky University's campus. We competed, we observed, and enjoyed the day out of school.
 
 
Fall Regional Conference
September 2010
Region 2 FBLA offers our members the incredible opportunity of attending training workshops at Western Kentucky University to improve student knowledge and skill in selected areas. Members received training in Scrapbooking, presentations skills & project guidelines.
