BELMONT — Members of Belmont High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America are busy this week promoting the purpose and value of their organization to their peers and administration at the high school, the School Board, and the local community.
According to senior Shania Mulley, who is the reporter for the BHS FBLA chapter, "FBLA opens a lot of doors for people. There is so much opportunity to build business skills, as well as leadership skills. This week we will be meeting with different people at school and in the community to tell them what FBLA is all about and what we do."
Community service is a large part of the experience that FBLA offers, so members of the FBLA chapter at Belmont High School decided to kick the week off Saturday night in Manchester at the Monarchs "Pink in the Rink" event supporting the fight against breast cancer.
On Monday students planned to hold a social event to start the school week off, inviting friends who might be interested in learning more about their organization to join them for pizza. "Bringing a friend to our socials is a fun and creative way to get people to join FBLA and they don't just come for the pizza, they end up sticking around when they see what we do and how much fun we have," stated FBLA Vice President Mary Kate Russo.
The Monday social also offered a unique experience as BHS Alumnus Nick Harriman, who last year opened a frozen yogurt business, Dips, on Main Street in Concord, returned to talk with the future business leaders about what inspired him to open a business, why he chose the Concord location, and some of the successes and challenges he has dealt with in his first year of business.
On Tuesday night, FBLA President Colton Cadarette, Treasurer Nikolai Fernandez, and senior Cody North headed over to Canterbury Elementary School to deliver a presentation to the School Board.
On Wednesday, Colton, Mary Kate, and junior Chayleigh Cadarette planned to travel to Farmington High School to talk to students in Business Management about FBLA and the possibility of starting a chapter at their high school.
Many of the students at Belmont High School already know a little something about FBLA. Approximately 50 students are members of the BHS chapter this year, representing well over ten percent of the school population and a new record for participation. Adviser Ben Hill attributes the participation to the approach of FBLA. "This club is about offering opportunities for students to choose ways that they want to learn, participate, and give back to our local communities and people in need across the state of New Hampshire. The idea is that if students play a role in choosing what we do as an organization, they will be more committed to those events and causes, and hopefully learn more as a result of that commitment and ownership.''
