After finishing in first place at both regionals and state, White became the first Everett Public Schools student to finish in the top 10 since Cascade reestablished FBLA three years ago. White also finished fifth in Parliamentary Procedures and eighth in Business Calculations at the state competition.

“FBLA was a really great experience which challenged the things that I have learned as I needed to really apply them,” White said. “It’s not going to be an experience I ever forget.”

FBLA is national organization and a club at Cascade High School that gives students the chance to compete in authentic business situations without having to take a particular class.
