Asia Andrews and Tyler Edenfield were honored recently at the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tenn. Both were awarded FBLA Distinguished Business Leader Scholarships. Only ten Distinguished Business Leader Scholars are selected from the 210,000 FBLA members across the nation. After meeting the criteria for the scholarships, completing applications, and obtaining letters of recommendations, both Swainsboro High School FBLA members were selected for cash scholarships and honored during the Opening General Session at the 2006 FBLA National Leadership Conference.
Andrews is a 2006 honor graduate of Swainsboro High School. While at SHS, Andrews was involved in FBLA, 4-H, Beta, and cheerleading. She was a Senior Superlative and Senior Choice Award Winner. She competed on the regional, state, and national levels with FBLA. This past year, Asia served her local FBLA chapter as president and was the Georgia FBLA Region 4 Vice President. She has received the Future, Business, Leader, and America Levels of the FBLA Business Achievement Awards Program-an honor that less than 1% of all FBLA members achieve. Asia will be attending West Georgia College in the fall. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Isiah Andrews of Swainsboro.
Edenfield also received a Distinguished Business Leader Scholarship. While at SHS, Tyler was involved in FBLA, Beta, TSA, and student council.
