BFHS FBLA's Chapter Experiences Success at their Regional Leadership Conference

February 11, 2020 - Congratulations to our FBLA State Qualifiers. Although we were one of the smallest schools in attendance, our chapter earned 4th place in the Most Outstanding Chapter competition based purely on our students' success.

At the regional competition, BFHS had 29 students compete in 19 different events. The top 3 competitors in each event qualify for the state competition to be held on March 30-31. BFHS had 16 students qualify in 11 events this year. UPDATE: we just learned that Valeria Lopez also is a state qualifier due to one of the top three finishers in her event cancel.
