To The Daily Sun,
As a vendor who participates in many craft fairs, large and small, throughout the year I'd like to publicly thank The Future Business Leaders of America at Belmont High School and their advisor, Ben Hill, for the outstanding job they do with their annual Belmont High School Holiday Fair. This past Saturday was their 7th annual event and my sixth year as a participant in it, and I can only say it gets better and better each year! It is the best organized and best promoted non-profit event in which I have ever participated. The students solicit and thoughtfully use the feedback of their participants in order to ensure that it is a successful event not just for their own interest/organization, but also for their vendors. They also exhibit excellent customer service to their vendors during the event by helping us unload/load our inventory, watch our booths if we need a break, and deliver lunch/drinks to us throughout the day — all of which is very much appreciated.
As a business owner and taxpayer of Belmont, I am happy to see firsthand that our students are being well taught solid principles of business and marketing that will certainly qualify them as Future Business Leaders of America. Kudos to Mr. Hill and the Future Business Leaders of America at Belmont High School for a job well done!
