VALDOSTA, Ga.— Lowndes Middle School’s Future Business Leaders of America Program recently competed in the Middle Level State FBLA Conference. Among the LMS Students to place Top 10 in their divisions were Ryleigh Wienke, Madison Booth, Jaley Arnold, and Hunter Wills. We congratulate these students on their achievements.


LMS’ FBLA students place Top 10 in the State!

Lowndes Middle School FBLA students had a great year at the Georgia FBLA State Conference. Students traveled during the month of February to compete at the Middle Level State FBLA Conference. Georgia FBLA is the premier organization for Georgia’s student leaders interested in careers in business. The conference provides an opportunity for middle school students to compete in a state-wide competitive events program. The top winner in each national FBLA-Middle Level competitive event is eligible to advance to the National FBLA Leadership Conference.

After many months of work and vigorous competition led by teacher and FBLA sponsor Mr. Alvin Earp, LMS students came home with 4 top five finishes!  Ryleigh Wienke placed first in Career Exploration, Madison Booth placed 2nd in Business Etiquette, Jaley Arnold placed 4th in FBLA Concepts, and  Hunter Wills placed 10th in Parliamentary procedures. Ryleigh Wienke also qualified to compete at the National FBLA Conference this summer in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Prior to the state competition, students competed in the GA FBLA Region 2 Conference with 13 students competing in two events each. Eleven students placed in the top five in one or both of their events  bringing home a total of 17 top five ribbons! 

This year also marks the fourth consecutive year that a Lowndes County Middle School student has held a GA FBLA State Officer position and the second in three years for a Lowndes Middle School student. Jaley Arnold is the current GA FBLA Mid-Level State Secretary. We have an amazing group of FBLA students at Lowndes Middle School each possessing a high leadership potential. The future is looking bright for our community due to the combined diligent efforts of students, families, and teachers at Lowndes Middle School!
