Emanuel County Institute’s FBLA chapter recently celebrated FBLA-PBL Week.
To kick off the celebration, the officer team met with Twin City mayor Eileen Dudley, at which time she signed a proclamation declaring Feb. 5-9, 2018, as FBLA Week.
Throughout the week, members received different prizes for each day, as well as a dress down ticket for Friday, and on Wednesday, members treated the faculty and staff to a loaded barbecue baked potato luncheon. Members were also encouraged to get a friend to sign up for FBLA for a discounted price.
