BUILDING BETTER MEMBERS (BBM) RECIPIENTS

2017 FALL LEADERSHIP EXTRAVAGANZA

KEANU WASHINGTON

Keanu Washington is a member of La Joya Community High School FBLA. I first met Keanu at my chapter visit to La Joya. He was very attentive and asked many questions during the presentation, always with a mind and focus on gathering information and helping others. He displayed countless leadership skills and traits, and continued to do so when I saw him again at the FLEX Conference. He is the recipient of this BBM pin for his constant quest for knowledge and growth as a leader in FBLA.

MARISSA LARA

Marissa Lara, a sophomore from Tucson High School, came up to me at the Fall Leadership Extravaganza asking to take a picture for a scavenger hunt that her chapter officer team came up with. I thought “wow what a great idea to have a conference scavenger hunt to keep the members involved” and I decided to get to know a little bit more about her. Being only a sophomore, Marissa is already an officer for her chapter in charge of community service. Not only is she involved with FBLA but she is involved with track & field as well. She also enjoys drawing and playing instruments, so overall Marissa is a well-rounded student. She hopes to gain a lot of experience from FBLA and to build her confidence and public speaking skills. Congratulations to one of the 10 BBM winners, Marissa Lara!

RAMON CHAVEZ

When I first encountered Ramon Chavez he was networking with a group of FBLA members from the St. David Chapter. At the FLEX conference, it was evident that his encouraging leadership lifted surrounding members. I respect his willingness to ask challenging questions that clearly express his quest for knowledge. The positive energy and curiosity of Ramon exhibits the qualities of a dedicated FBLA member. This Kingman High School student is a prime example of a Future Business Leader.

TENILLE UPDIKE

Tenille Updike is a member of the Blue Ridge High School Chapter, and it was such a pleasure to speak with her at this conference. She told me about what she learned from the workshops she attended, and of her determination to run for state office. She is truly an example to me of what an inspired and hard-working FBLA member should be. Not only is she a wonderful member, but a joy to be around. She certainly is building better membership as she devotes her time to FBLA. Thank you for all you do Tenille!

KEVIN VAN

This is Kevin Van and he is a junior at Tolleson High School. I met Kevin at a couple workshops that were focused how a member can get the best out of their FBLA experience and help their chapter as well. In these workshops, I've noticed the type of attention Kevin had by asking the great questions and taking notes. Whenever there was a need for a volunteer, Kevin made sure to put himself out there. He never missed a moment to lighten the mood and make the entire room laugh, network with members from other schools and organizations, as well as bring positive energy to the room. Great job Kevin for showing your FBLA pride at the Fall Leadership Extravaganza and thank you for FLEXing your leadership muscles!

BRENDON NUTTALL

Brendon Nuttall is a Junior at Thatcher High School. He's an active member and works hard to make sure that his chapter's great. He not only makes a difference within his chapter, but he's made an impact with other members as well. His positive attitude and leadership qualities were easily noticeable at this year's FLEX Conference. I'm honored to have the opportunity to meet members like Brendon, and I can't wait to see him continue his FBLA journey!
