Like many other academic activities and competitions this spring, the Colorado Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) transitioned its state leadership conference to a virtual format this April, allowing students and sponsors to connect and compete in a host of business-related categories.
Primero was represented well at the 2020 Colorado State FBLA Virtual Leadership Conference. With students performing and participating through on-line measures, seniors Kaylee Armijo and Connor Lutz placed in the top ten at the state-level competition in their respective categories of Accounting and Advertising.
The Primero students who also participated at state, along with Lutz and Armijo, were Jace Baribeau - Introduction to Business; Andrew Lutz - Economics; and Kimberlee Riggins - Personal Finance.
“Although our students have faced unforeseen challenges and changes during this pandemic, they are learning resilience which is another FBLA leadership skill that will assist them in being successful in their future endeavors,” said Primero FBLA sponsor Brandee Gallegos. “I’m truly proud of each and every one of them, and I hope Primero’s seniors and all seniors know that I am proud of them and all they endured in 2020; they will never be forgotten, just recognized and honored in a special way.”
