Linn-Mar FBLA Places 5th at State Conference

This past weekend, Linn-Mar High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) members participated in the FBLA State Leadership Conference in Coralville, IA. The conference consisted of various activities including a charity dance and walk for the March of Dimes, a hypnotist, photo booth and campaign rally. Member Mclay Lampe ran for the office of Treasurer.

For three days, members took tests and presented various projects to judges.
