On Thursday, January 26, 2017, members of the Sloan-Hendrix chapter of Future Business Leaders of America attended the District II Spring Leadership Conference at Nettleton High School. 
Members had previously taken their written tests under the direction of Technology Coordinator Randy Gholson and were waiting for the results to be announced during the awards ceremony.  Colton Dail and Kierce Due, who were entered in the Sports and Entertainment Management event, had qualified to present their case before a panel of judges.  While they were pleading their case, the remaining members enjoyed a keynote speaker, a talent show, and listened to campaign speeches.
After a break for lunch, members returned to the Nettleton Performing Arts Center and waited anxiously for the awards ceremony.  Those members qualifying for state competition include Jessica Swayne, 2nd place, Introduction to Business; Colton Dail and Kierce Due, 3rd place, Sports and Entertainment Management; Riley Hubbard, 4th place, Business Calculations; and Buzz Gholson, 6th place, Introduction to Financial Math.
Other members placed in the top ten.  They include Perry Hutton, 8th place, Cyber Security; Madi McCreight, 8th place, Introduction to Business Procedures; Hannah Malin, 9th place, Accounting I; Madisyn Boshears, 9th place, Business Law; Jaden Sharum, 9th place, Organizational Leadership; and Claire Causbie, 9th place, Personal Finance.
The state leadership conference will be in April in Little Rock.
