APS FBLA Students Go for Gold

What do 32 Vista PEAK Preparatory students and 27 Rangeview High School students have in common? They each brought home a sparkling gold medal from the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) District Leadership Conference!

This marks the first time Aurora Public Schools had nearly 60 FBLA gold medalists at a single competition.

Students qualified in events such as Accounting, Impromptu Speaking, Business Ethics and more as they went toe to toe against their peers from high schools across the state. The group advanced to compete in FBLA’s State Leadership Conference in Vail, Colo. in April.

FBLA is a non-profit organization that encourages students to pursue careers in the business world. Involvement in FBLA programs helps students build confidence, a deeper sense of community responsibility and leadership skills to implement their plans.

Bravo to our students for doing such a wonderful job representing APS and the Aurora community. We wish them the best of luck at state!
