Crosett High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) attended the FBLA Fall Leadership Conference at the Grand Prairie Center in Stuttgart Oct. 9. Thirty students represented CHS.

FBLA advisor Janla Gardner and her sister Kelly Savage accompanied the students on the trip as chaperones. Motivational speaker Jason Hudnell talked about how if you don’t waste your seconds, then you are wasting your life. Service projects including the Make A Wish Foundation, Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Arkansas Regional Organ Recovery Agency were also topics of discussion at the conference.
