Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical Georgia FBLA State Leadership Conference was again changed to a virtual conference.
On Tuesday, March 23, several Metter High School FBLA competitors, along with Advisers Brenda Deal and Brandy Rogers, gathered in the Bigwood Room for an all-day conference.
Attendees watched the Opening Session through the Live Stream video and then competed in a Monopoly tournament which is a favorite activity at some of the in-person Georgia FBLA conferences.
After lunch students continued with more team building games and activities while waiting for the Awards Session to begin.
During the Opening Session Live Stream video, Metter High School FBLA was awarded 1st Place in Largest Market Share (which is total chapter membership percentage of school population), 3rd Place in Largest Local Chapter Membership – Professional Division, and 4th place in Largest Local Chapter Membership.
Metter High School FBLA was once again named a Superior Chapter for the 9th year in a row. MHS FBLA has received this award each year since this particular award’s inception.
During the Awards Ceremony Live Stream video, Metter High School FBLA was awarded 1st Place in the prestigious Chapter of the Year competition for Division 2, which is all schools that have less than 1500 students enrolled.
