The Chadron High Future Business Leaders of America attended the annual State Leadership Conference in Kearney, NE on April 2-5.  While at the conference, students participated in a big business tour of Cash Wa Distributing where students learned about the inner workings of a distribution business. To start the conference, students were motivated as they listened to the keynote speaker, Aric Jackson and attended a variety of workshops.  But most importantly, Chadron students competed amongst all class levels in many different business competitions.  This conference was attended by over 2,000 students and advisors this year. Although Chadron FBLA traveled only 15 members to the state competition this year, they brought home several honors.
