Nolan Byrd

Southeast Region Vice President

 


August

Hello Southeast Region!

My name is Nolan Byrd. I am from Triton High School in the small town of Erwin. I am a rising senior and have been an active member of FBLA for two years. First, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the opportunity that you have granted me. Serving as Southeast Region Vice President has already helped me to meet new people, learn new things, and grow as a leader. Shortly after the State Leadership Conference, the new officer team attended the CTSO Officer Training Weekend, in Raleigh. There, we learned more about ourselves and grew closer as a team. At the beginning of July, the officer team attended the National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. In Baltimore, the Southeast Region and the state excelled in Competitive Events. The state had two middle schoolers place 2nd in the nation in their events. During the high school awards, North Carolina had eight winners, two of which are from our region. Congratulations to Eric Chang from Harnett Central High School and Taft Stevens from Triton High School. Eric Chang placed 1st in the nation in Spreadsheet Applications, and Taft Stevens placed 3rd in the nation in Word Processing. I am also very proud of all of the competitors from the Southeast Region.

This year, North Carolina Future Business Leaders of America will be celebrating 65 years. This organization truly has a Legacy of Success, and your 2018-2019 Officer Team deemed this theme appropriate. Southeast Region, let us strive to succeed this year more than ever; whether that be in personal growth, school, or FBLA.
