The theme for the Pennsylvania Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) fifty-ninth annual State Leadership Conference was “Simply the Best.” Twelve graduate and undergraduate students from the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology who are preparing to be business teachers displayed “their best” by representing Eberly at a recruitment table and assisting as judges, proctors, and student advisors.
Eberly College sponsored its third annual IUP Alumni Reception, attended by over fifty business teachers representing school districts throughout Pennsylvania. Wayne Moore and Linda Szul acted as hosts for this reception. Our alumni who are teaching and advising FBLA chapters constantly recruit and provide a steady stream of high-quality IUP business students.
The 3,500 high school students participated in business and leadership competitions in over thirty areas, including accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, business ethics, website development, business plan, and digital video production.
