members of the Sloan-Hendrix Future Business Leaders of America attended
the District II Fall Leadership Conference held at the Southwest Church
of Christ in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
At the conference, members heard from representatives of the various service organizations that the state chapter supports. A report was given by Arkansas Children’s Hospital, March of Dimes, Make-a-Wish, and ARORA (Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency).
Keynote speaker for the event was Shannon Pickard, a motivational speaker from Texas. He encouraged students to make wise choices in life and asked them to think, not about what they wanted to be, but, about who they wanted to be.
The Sloan-Hendrix chapter has chosen to continue their food drive service project which will culminate during homecoming week. Food will be distributed to area senior citizens. Anyone interested in supporting this project can contact the chapter through the school.
