In particular, she has recognized the need for one of her students with significant learning needs in reading to have access to accessible instructional materials.

 Many of Linn-Mar's FBLA students recognized

by Madhuri Belkale, LMHS junior and Reporter of Linn-Mar's FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) Chapter

At the FBLA State Leadership Conference, on March 12-14, the theme was "Step up to the Challenge." Linn-Mar FBLA stepped up to the challenge at their State Conference!

LMHS had many students receive high honors on their competitive state events. Anyone who received 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in a National Event qualified for the National Leadership Conference in Chicago this summer. With only 24 students attending, Linn-Mar also placed 4th at State, which is impressive for the number of students we took! We also had two students elected to State Officer Positions: Junior Sruthi Palaniappan as State President and Sophomore Jonathan Wisner as State Treasurer!

Below are all of the placements Linn-Mar FBLA students received:
