A Little About Me

As you know, my name is Keton York. I am 16 years old and I have lived in North Carolina my entire life. At school, I am involved in a number of extra-curricular activities such as swim team, NJ ROTC, school ambassadors, and most importantly, FBLA. I joined this organization during my 6th grade year and quickly became the chapter president. I have held an assortment of chapter offices ever since and competed in an event every year. Outside of school, I work in my community through my church doing things like chopping firewood for locals and hosting social events. I have been on three mission trips where I repaired homes and buildings in poverty-stricken areas of North Carolina, Georgia, and Kentucky. Some other fun facts are: my favorite color is red, I love video games and my favorite music is classic rock or county.

Upcoming Events

  • NC FBLA is hosting NFLC in Charlotte this year Nov. 16-17. We encourage all FBLA members to attend this event. It’s going to be a blast!
  • Online Membership Registration is now open. The fall deadline is Oct. 20th Dues must be received and
    processed by FBLA National by Nov. 1st in order for students to compete in Regional Competitive Events.
  • RCEC will be hosted at Cary High School on December 15th. More information to come!

Important News

  • This year, our region will be piloting a new program I created for middle level students. This program is designed for middle schools in FBLA to get an idea of what it is like to be a state officer at Regional Conference. The program is limited to 7th and 8th grade students who are competing in an online or state level event. They will join me at RCEC and shadow me throughout the day. I will be sending out more information on how to apply.
  • I will be visiting schools in our region in the months leading up to RCEC. If you would like me to come to your school during one of your chapter meetings, please speak to your advisor and have them email me. I will do my best to see as many of you as possible.

Review of Baltimore

The National Leadership Conference this year was a blast from the scenery of Baltimore Harbor to our hardworking students the entire event was amazing. I enjoyed spending time with our officer team and with some of you. Shout out to our finalists and specifically our winners from F.J. Carnage Middle School.  

Renewed Chapters

Please join me in welcoming Green Hope and Vance County High Schools back to FBLA. We are so excited to have you back in of region. I look forward to seeing you at RCEC!
