Business Management students from San Luis High School competed last week at the Future Business Leaders of America Arizona state competition.

FBLA is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education association with a quarter-million student members, preparing for careers in business and business-related fields. The San Luis High chapter competed in five different contests at this year’s event, placing in four of them.

“It was a joy working with such a great team of students,” said San Luis FBLA advisor Zaira Gonzalez. “They worked very hard and represented our district very well.” SLHS FBLA State team
