Central High School’s Hannah Turner Earns FBLA America Level Honor

Mar 20 2017

Central High School’s Hannah Turner was recognized for earning the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) America Level achievement award at the FBLA State Conference in Atlanta. Turner will also be recognized at the National FBLA Conference in Anaheim, California in June. The FBLA Business Achievement Award (BBA) is a high school leadership development program integrated into the business education classroom. Students enhance their leadership skills, expand their business knowledge, contribute to their local communities, and earn recognition for each step by immersing themselves in their school, community and FBLA chapter.

To earn the BAA America level award students complete the FBLA International Recruitment Project, create an online autobiographical scrapbook presentation, participate in a free enterprise project with elementary or junior high school students, prepare and maintain a blog, complete an e-portfolio, along with numerous community service and school service projects. Turner exceeded all expectations and is the first Central High School FBLA student to earn the America level honor. Students completing each level, beginning with the Business level, receive a lapel pin, certificate or plaque, and are honored on state and local websites. “We are extremely proud of Hannah. She worked four (4) years to complete each BAA level, and has set the bar at the top for future FBLA students,” said Ms. Sarah Hall, one of her business teachers and FBLA advisor.

Ms. Kelly Bass and Ms. Sarah Hall are Central High School’s FBLA advisors and business education teachers.
