Appeared in The Chieftain Volume 35, Issue 3
After months of preparation,
our school’s FBLA chapter finally found out just how great they are. On
April 9th and 10th Scappoose FBLA received many awards, most were for first
place. Mrs. Hill and the whole chapter were surprised to find out that
she won Oregon State FBLA Advisor of the Year. The club also took home
the Oregon State FBLA Chapter of the Year Award! Each school division (4A,
3A, 2A, 1A) competes against other schools in their division. Our chapter
was in the race with all 3A schools. Scappoose made it to the finals along
with 4 other schools. All the club members had a hunch that they would
receive the award for the fourth straight year! When they found out, just
about every member there jumped on a chair and started chanting Scappoose,
