Two State Fair Community College students represented Missouri June 22-25 at the annual Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) national leadership conference in Anaheim, Calif.

Laura Petree, Tipton, placed seventh in the nation in Sales Presentation out of more than 40 participants in that event. Petree and Jake Knipp, Tipton, also competed in Desktop Publishing as a team.

“These two students are also state PBL officers and have done an amazing job of representing SFCC the last two years,” said Jodi Fudge, PBL advisor and Office Management program coordinator. “They both graduated with honors in May from SFCC and plan to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia this fall.”

SFCC instructor and PBL advisor Jodi Fudge accompanied the students.

FBLA-PBL is a nonprofit education association that prepares students for careers in business and business education. More than 2,000 college students attended the conference, competing in more than 55 business and business-related competitive events. Photo submitted.
