 Linn-Mar FBLA students attend State Fall Leadership Conference

On October 4th-5th, 29 members of our Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter attended the State Fall Leadership Conference in Des Moines, IA.

At opening session, musician Mitch Goudy gave a keynote speech, highlighting his experiences in the business world and how he's been able to follow his dreams of becoming a country music star. All chapters from across the state participated in the Miracle Minute, a 60-second fundraiser for March of Dimes. Linn-Mar FBLA came in second, raising just over $20 among all members. On October 4th, students were given the opportunity to attend workshops held by professionals and FBLA state officers and learn important business skills. The morning of the 5th, Linn-Mar FBLA participated in the Leadership Reaction Course at Camp Dodge, a National Guard base, and toured Kinze Manufacturing, Inc. where chapter members could speak with professionals in their fields of interest.

"Linn-Mar FBLA members are grateful for this opportunity," said Linn-Mar FBLA student Madhuri Belkale. "And we hope to be able to apply their new knowledge towards the business community."


 Tax-Deductible Donations Now Being Accepted for Student-Run Business

Students involved with the High School’s newest business, theROARstore, are currently asking for your assistance in an attempt to grow their capital base. theROARstore is a high school class made up of Juniors and Seniors, who want to take what they have learned in their business courses, apply it, and gain a first-hand experience being a young entrepreneur.

They have decided to specialize in designing, marketing, and selling branded and licensed Linn-Mar apparel to students, staff, parents, and fans. Currently, theROARstore is serving the high school student population using its mobile kiosk, but with the current High School construction project, members are preparing for the opening of their new brick and mortar store on the south side of the building. This will not only give students a place to sell and call their own, but will also give future students a more realistic experience and consumers a specific location and hours to purchase Linn-Mar items. They are also exploring the opportunity of selling products online.

Students have already started buying and selling merchandise successfully and predict that expenses will continue to rise as a physical store is built. Students have set their goal of raising $10,000 by the end of the 2015-16 school year. Money raised will go towards the purchase of equipment, fixtures, supplies, and new inventory needed for the day-to-day operations of the business.
