Smith-Cotton FBLA Advisor Lakin Janke said: “I am so proud of the success we saw
at Districts this year. We have a group of young members who worked very hard to
prepare for their competitions. We are in the largest district in the state, with more than
600 students competing locally. I cannot express how thrilled I am with these results and that we have so many moving on to the next level of competition. I am grateful our
school is able to provide the resources for these young minds to flourish within our
Career and Technical programs.”
