“Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following?

The extra mile.”

-Gary Ryan Blair

Hello Triad Region!

I am very excited to see you all at the Triad Region Fall Leadership Conference tomorrow at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro! It will be amazing and a great opportunity to network with other FBLA members!

On a similar note, the Triad Region Competitive Events Conference is coming up! Be sure to register your members soon and introduce the competitions for this year. If you have any questions about the conference, please feel free to contact me. It is very important for competitors to start preparing early so they can compete to the best of their abilities.

This month has flown by for me, and I’m sure it has for other seniors as well. Applying to colleges is very tough and stressful, but we will all get through it; and I know you will all go to amazing colleges. To my fellow seniors, please take advantage of FBLA Scholarships this year! They are awesome opportunities and can really impact our futures.

Finally, keep in mind the Carolina Hurricanes Sports Business Day, November 7th, is coming up! It will be a great opportunity to learn about sports marketing and network with other members. The event will include a speaker session featuring Hurricanes executives, trivia, a Hurricanes game ticket and more.


I hope you all are having an amazing year. and I can’t wait to do great things with you!!

-Gabrielle (Gabby) Kmiec
