On Friday, March 8, members of Berea Community High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the annual Regional Conference at Eastern Kentucky University.

BCHS is a member of Kentucky FBLA’s Region 6, which includes schools from 32 surrounding southeast counties. Over thirty BCHS students traveled to EKU to compete against club members from these schools in various events: Zane Brown competed in Business Ethics; Emily Biggs, Arika Mullins, Alexis Hayden, Emy Lovell and Adrienne Beggs in bulletin board; Ryan Whitt in the Talent Show; Caleb Rader in Sales Presentation, Eric Luppens and Caden Degregorio in Marketing; Lucas Hannon in Impromptu Speaking; Carly McDonald in Public Speaking; Abby Ambrose, Hayleigh Burrows and Alyssa Carter in Public Service Announcement; and Macy Richardson, Kyla Rister and Carly McDonald in Local Chapter Scrapbook.

Additionally, Julian Clavere placed 2nd in Accounting; Tori Williams placed 1st in Health Care Administration; Sean Feagin, Hannah Caudill and Savannah Lurty placed 3rd in Hospitality Management; Coleman Reed placed 1st in Financial Math; and Ben West, Triston Duckworth and Dylan Hanney placed 3rd in Sports and Entertainment Management. These students will advance to the state competition in Louisville on April 15-17. Constance Wright, who placed 4th in Journalism, will also advance to state due to the inability of others in her category to attend.

Finally, Jatzel Correa and Julia Kilgore placed 3rd in the Talent Show with their routine to “House of the Rising Sun.” Julia performed a pointe ballet dance while Jatzel played the piano; the girls worked for several months on their performance. “The experience of performing was really good, as it was our second performance together. It was exciting and nerve racking,” Jatzel said. “It was fun to participate and we are definitely looking forward to doing something like this again.” While the girls will not be advancing to state (only the top two acts in the Talent Show advance), they and the rest of BCHS FBLA look forward to what the state qualifiers will accomplish in Louisville this April.
