The Centennial FBLA chapter attended the State Leadership Conference in Omaha, on April 6th-8th.  The keynote speaker was Hoan Do, who is a student success coach, author, and competitor on NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” show.  Hoan talked to students about focusing on what they can control, and how to be successful leaders with a great attitude.  Along with the keynote speaker, students had a chance to attend leadership workshops put on by Hudl, Chick-fil-A, the Omaha FBI, and other social media companies. Centennial students did an excellent job of representing our school in their competitive events, and we had several students do exceptionally well in the following events:


*Garrett Richters finished 10th out of 221 students and received Honorable Mention in the Agribusiness competition (paper/pencil multiple choice test)

*Logan Johansen finished 13th out of 119 students and received Honorable Mention in the Insurance & Risk Management Competition (paper/pencil multiple choice test)

*Trevor Dey, Justin Heine, and Garrett Richters placed 9th out of 70 teams and received Honorable Mention in the Banking & Financial Systems competition (online multiple choice test)

*Sierra Epke and Logan Johansen finished in 7th place in Management Information Systems Competition (they were given an information systems problem scenario and had to come up with a solution and present it to a group of judges)

*Preston Stuhr, Trevor Dey, and Ryan Schlueter finished 8th out of 192 teams in the Sports & Entertainment Management competition (they were given an sports/entertainment marketing scenario and had to come up with a solution and present it to a group of judges)


We also had four students qualify for the National Leadership Conference Competitions:

a

*Preston Stuhr & Garrett Richters (Virtual Business Challenge – they competed against over 400 teams across the country in an online virtual business simulation and placed 1st in the nation)

*Logan Johansen (Microsoft Office Specialist – Excel)

*Justin Heine (Agribusiness)


Preston, Garrett, Logan, and Justin will represent Nebraska in the National FBLA conference this summer in Anaheim, California.  Thanks to all students for putting in the hard work and representing Centennial in a great way!
