Nolan Byrd

Southeast Region Vice President



Hello Southeast Region!

My name is Nolan Byrd. I am from Triton High School in the small town of Erwin. I am a senior and have been an active member of FBLA for three 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 while serving this great region!

Albuquerque NFLC Recap

The North Carolina Officer Team attended the NFLC in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While there, we attended state officer workshops that gave us many ideas that we brought home to North Carolina. In our free time, we enjoyed the amazing sights that Albuquerque has to offer. We visited the top of Sandia Crest which is roughly 10,600 feet above sea level. We attended a Chinese cultural festival and enjoyed many of the restauraunts that showcased the cuisine of New Mexico and the American Southwest.

Prematurity Awareness Month

November is Prematurity Awareness Month. One in eight babies is born prematurely. Some of these children face serious health challenges or have learning disabilities. With the technology that we have today, even with the best of care, some babies are not spared from lasting disabilities. It will take many years to conduct research and improve the technology and methods that we use to treat premature babies. FBLA’s national service partnership with the March of Dimes allows you and me to take initiative and make an impact in these children and family’s lives. You can visit this link to register to receive an Electronic Toolkit that has all of the information to host your very own Prematurity Awareness Month Activity. Make sure to tag @nolan_fbla and @nc__fbla in your pictures so that we can post your events on the state Instagram and Twitter accounts!

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.
