Port Angeles students headed to national FBLA conference in Texas on June 27

BELLEVUE — Students from the Port Angeles High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America competed in a business leadership conference April 10-13 in Bellevue.

According to a press release, the conference was attended by more than 1,800 students representing chapters from 150 high schools across the state.

The 14 Port Angeles students were accompanied by advisors Pam Helpenstell and Bernie Brabant.

Results of the competition for the local students are:

• Talia Anderson, Anne Edwards and Abby Sanders, digital video production, first place.

• Amelie Atwater and Meiqi Liang, local chapter annual report, first place.

• Talia Anderson, certified Microsoft office word specialist, second place.

• Amelie Atwater, accounting I, fifth place.

• Leo Ahlburg and Josh Hill, marketing, eighth place

• Meiqi Liang, management decision making, eighth place.

• Hollund Bailey, job interview, eighth place.

• Amelie Atwater and Meiqi Liang, entrepreneurship, ninth place.

• Luke Gavin, introduction to parliamentary procedure, ninth place.

• Leo Ahlburg, Mauritz Ahlburg, Hollund Bailey, Santiago Montal and Andrew Pena, parliamentary procedure team, 10th place.

Students who placed fourth or higher are qualified to advance to the national conference in San Antonio, Texas, from June 27 through July 3.

First-place finishers Liang, Atwater, Edwards, Sanders and Anderson will compete at the national conference.

Because some students from within the state have qualified in more that one category but elected to focus on just one, Hill, Gavin and Ahlburg also will compete at the national conference.
