“Be your own brand”
By: Gladys Callejas
Every activity impacted the advisers and the students in a variety of ways. At the capital building, students had the chance of talking to a candidate running for Arizona State senate. Did you know the highest children traffic rate comes from those who are in the foster care systems? This topic taught the students to speak up, to stand up for what’s right, and take back the power the people have. Budget and social skills played a huge role in this trip. Buying food, cooking for others, being able to stay at a house and getting along. Seeing homeless people and how an urbane area works. Students stepped up and took the role of leadership when needed. Chants and cheers to this day are engraved in the advisers’ and students’ memories. Participating in the “rowdy crowd,” taught the students about the traditions in finding Kansas and also how to take pride in our state. One tradition FBLA participates is in the March of Dimes they help improve the health of mothers and babies. Many college door opportunities opened up for the students. Recruiters from different colleges made them realize the variety of options they can choose from. Garden of the Gods showed the students all the different types of art and culture created by nature. Students learned about safety and how not to be a target. Confidence was built within each student also giving them the opportunity to show their own uniqueness.

Many doors opened for each FBLA member that got the chance to go on this trip. New and more activities will be coming from your Stanton County High School FBLA chapter. We hope to see new faces join FBLA!
