On Thursday, September 27, thirty-five members of the Sloan-Hendrix FBLA attended the District II
Fall Leadership Conference in Jonesboro, Arkansas.  FBLA theme for this school year is "Leadership in Action".
District officers had chosen the Make A Wish Foundation as one of the service projects for District II.  Each
chapter was encouraged to make a donation to this organization which makes the wishes of seriously ill children
come true.  Through the generous donations of faculty, staff, and FBLA members, the Sloan-Hendrix chapter was
able to make a donation of $105.  Ryan Difani represented Sloan-Hendrix by presenting the donation and responding
to the chapter roll call.

After various district reports were given, members listened to the keynote speaker, James Malinchak, writer and editor
of the Chicken Soup books.  He encouraged students to seek positive influences in their lives and to live their lives as
a positive influence to others.  He reminded students that they are an influence to others, even if they arenít aware of it.

At the end of the conference, the Sloan-Hendrix chapter spent time at the K-Mart shopping area where they ate lunch
and did some shopping.
