The keynote speaker was Gus Gustafon who talked about the challenges he overcame after losing one of his arms and part of a leg in a tractor accident as a child. Along with the keynote speaker, students had a chance to attend workshops and compete against other schools in several events. Centennial students did an excellent job of representing our school, and we had several students do exceptionally well in the following events:
  • Stephen Yamber finished in the top 16 out of 410 in Proofreading competition (paper/pencil multiple choice test)
  • Trevor Slawnyk finished in the top 20 out of 550 in Personal Finance competition (paper/pencil multiple choice test)
  • Dalton Dey finished in the top 30 out of 300 in the Job Mock Interview competition
  • Ashlee Fish & Dylan Scheele placed 7th in the Business Presentation competition (they presented a 7 minute PowerPoint on appropriate business luncheon etiquette)
  • Ashlee Fish placed 3rd in the Electronic Career Portfolio competition (she created a website displaying her knowledge and skills in someday pursuing a career in nursing home administration)
  • Dalton Dey & Dylan Scheele placed 1st in the Management Decision Making Competition (as a team they were given a scenario of a troubled business and had to devise and present a plan as to how they would manage the situation)
Dalton and Dylan will represent Nebraska in the National FBLA conference this summer. Thanks to all students for putting in the hard work and representing Centennial in a great way!
