Morgan Middle School inaugural year of Future Business Leaders of America has proven to be successful. After several students placed at their first-ever regional competition, 20 students from MMS joined several other middle schools from around Utah at Utah Valley University on their Wasatch campus in Heber City on Monday March 27, to compete on the state level.

Students competed in areas including Annual Chapter Activities Presentation, Business Etiquette, Career Research, Digital Citizenship, Elevator Speech, Exploring Technology, FBLA Mission & Pledge and Video Game Challenge. Alexis Greenwood won state in Career Research and Elevator Speech, while Xavier Cornelius won state for Video Game Challenge. Sterling Wilde took first Place for his Career Research presentation and Kamri Clark and Devri Clark took fifth overall for their Community Service Presentation. 

"I am so proud of each of our students, for going and doing something they have never done before,” commented Krachel Fullmer, MMS’s FBLA Advisor. “We tried hard, learned a lot, and most important of all, we had fun along the way," Fullmer adds that this organization is giving students a first-hand look at careers in business, with opportunities to become community-minded along the way.

In there first year as a FBLA Chapter, MMS members have had the opportunity to tour both national and locally-based businesses, hear from guest speakers who work at corporate and local levels, served the community and laid, what Fullmer believes, is a good foundation for future business leaders right here in Morgan Valley.

FBLA is the largest Career and Technical Student Organization in the world, with over 230,000 student members enrolled in chapters across the country including FFA, FCCLA, SkillsUSA and Hosa. The MMS chapter is the first CTSO offered to middle school-aged students throughout Morgan County. λ
