Knox Central students tested and proved their business skills and knowledge during the Region 6 Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Leadership Conference held on March 8.
The conference, held on the campus of Eastern Kentucky University, is focused on preparing next-generation business leaders through competitive events. Competitive events fall into three categories: individual, team, and chapter. Individual and team events focus on skills useful in leadership and career development; chapter events recognize overall achievement and performance in chapter management and growth.
