Business Perk

After earning second place at the New York State Leadership Conference in April, the Falconer Chapter of Future Business Leaders of America traveled to Anaheim, Calif., to present their community service project during a national competition.

Chapter advisor, Michelle Johnson, accompanied chaperone, Leslie Kresconko, and chapter members Mikaela Johnson, Madelaine Bartholomew, Sha’al Smith, Emily Johnson, and Sydney Kresconko on this cross-country adventure.

After months of fundraising, planning, and practicing Mikaela, Madelaine, and Sha’al presented their Sydney Kresconko Benefit Project to a panel of judges.

They were overwhelmed to discover that they were in competition with a total of 64 other chapters from across the United States.

The young ladies were disappointed to discover they had not qualified to present in the final 15, but all agreed that they were proud of the hard work and dedication that they put into their performance.

While in attendance, members enjoyed visiting a variety of sights including Warner Bros. Studios, Rodeo Drive, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Disneyland. It was an opportunity for Falconer FBLA members to gain experience in competition, presentation skills, and to enjoy the sights and sounds that their California adventure had to offer.
