The 2014 Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) State Leadership Conference took place March 20-22, 2014 in Greensboro, NC.  Over 2,000 students from across the state participated in the event. MRHS FBLA students developed business skills through attending workshops, networking with other students, and competing in many of the more than sixty events such as Global Business, Entrepreneurship, and Public Speaking.  Please congratulate the following MRHS students, who performed exceptionally well in their events:

This is a very big accomplishment and the first time ever for Marvin Ridge High School FBLA!
