Former FBLA Pres Shares Passion

by Kristine Worthington - June 1, 2017

Sarah Hohman tapped into a powerful opportunity when she joined a Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter at her school. From Sarah’s story, we learned the benefits that students can gain from participation in FBLA. Students may have heard of FBLA in their school, but perhaps they didn’t realize they were missing out on a fun, team spirited, and competitive program. This program motivates students by awarding achievement and providing tools for future success.

As a young middle level student, Sarah knew she wanted to make a difference. She was lucky enough to find an avenue to fulfill that desire. Through FBLA’s competitive events, students like Sarah apply classroom learning to work situations. There are a variety of career categories at an FBLA event. A few of the career categories include: agriculture, communications, finance, and government. Participation in FBLA events unlocked Sarah’s potential as a leader. The skills and confidence she gained motivated Sarah to run for the position of FBLA State President. Sarah was successful and she held the position of FBLA State President for a year.

From her experiences in FBLA, Sarah was inspired to initiate the program, Build Your Legacy. This was a program for middle level students at North Penn-Mansfield High school. Sarah was pivotal in bringing together student, faculty, and community resources to allowed 7th and 8th grade students to create a product or service. She hopes programs like this will continue to inspire entrepreneurship in middle level students.

If you know a middle or high school student who wants to gain important job skills, make a difference in their community, or needs an outlet to find their passion, invite them to explore FBLA. Visit FBLA at their website http://www.pafbla.org/welcome.php
