And the Awards go to....

That's right. Awards, plural. And the winner? Katie!! Last night she won 4 awards and a $1,000 scholarship to Johnson and Wales University at the FBLA State Leadership Conference Awards Banquet. Wow! How exciting is that?! We are all so proud of her.

For those of you who don't know, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) is a national business organization with chapters in high schools around the country. Each year there is a State Leadership Conference in which the students compete by taking tests in different areas. Katie tested in Economics and Business Communications. She placed first in the state on both tests! I know RI is a small state, but it's still impressive! And as the first place winner of the Business Communications competition, Katie was also awarded a $1,000 Scholarship to Johnson and Wales University. Of course, she would have to decided to attend JWU, which I don't think she is considering, but still... how exciting!

But that's not all. Katie also serves as her chapter's Co-Historian and the scrapbook that she and her partner, Diana, created placed 3rd in the state. In addition to being her chapter's Co-Historian, Katie also served as the RI state Historian. And for that role she was awarded an Outstanding Member Award. Phew!

And as if all that wasn't thrilling enough, last night she also learned that she has been elected FBLA State Vice-President! Next stop, the National competitions in CA this summer. Go Katie!! You rock!!

Way to go, Katie!! We are so proud of you! I was so impressed when you attended the FBLA conference in Atlanta last year by yourself, and obviously you have impressed many other people, too. I have no doubt that your intelligence, ambition & confidence will take you far. Love you, Grama Sandy
