FBLA Results

Our FBLA group made it back from the blizzard in Grand Forks with great results. All seven students–Kendra Meyer, Steph Brenden, Ash Jerde, Alexis Kihle, Kaytlyn Aufforth, Anjali Kumar and Juliann Brandjord were awesome students to represent our school! Every one competed in at least two events. There were hundreds of students competing (I think they said 900) and these girls did wonderfully! Kaytlyn Aufforth place 8th...
