Ariana is extremely honored to be serving as the Vice President of Community Service this year and she cannot wait to see what the year holds in store. She is the oldest child of four and she plans on going to college to earn her Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and continue through medical school to become a surgeon. Ariana really loves to stress to students that FBLA is applicable to so much more than just business and that overall the organization helps to prepare you for whatever career you choose to pursue. Ariana has always been very focused on her academics, but she lived in Apache Junction, Arizona for the majority of her life and she felt as though there weren’t enough academic programs to challenge and stimulate students. During the summer that followed her freshman year, she moved to San Tan Valley, Arizona and she switched to San Tan Foothills High School. When Ariana went in to set up her classes for her freshman year she got stuck in a journalism class that she was absolutely dreading, but taking one of her least favorite classes led her to meet the school’s FBLA Advisor and she joined the best organization she’s ever been involved with. Ariana loves doing yoga and relaxing by watching movies because she thinks that it is super important to find a balance between hard work and relaxation. #stateofficersunday

James May was a new face when I attended the National Leadership Conference as a state officer this year. He quickly figured out that I was a state officer and he had a number of questions for me. I appreciated his interest in what being a state officer is like so I decided to get to know him a little better. He has been studying honors and AP classes throughout his high school career, which I thought was very impressive. He has been in FBLA for two years so I appreciate his commitment to our organization thus far. He is going to be a Sophomore in high school, so I cannot wait to see what his potential can do for him in FBLA. Overall, he is a well rounded student, doing advanced class, 3 sports a year, and he is very committed to FBLA.
When asked to pick a member who displayed exceptional leadership qualities at the 2017 National Leadership conference, my mind went directly to Duncan Schultz. He first impressed me with his exceptional friendliness towards others and I witnessed it firsthand when he started a conversation with me and was extremely kind the whole time. Besides being nice and charismatic, Duncan went above and beyond at NLC to help Seth Filo while he was campaigning to try and become national president. Duncan put in long hours to help a fellow chapter member out because he believed in his potential and his leadership. Duncan believes that FBLA provides students with opportunity to go into the business world prepared. I know that as Duncan goes into his senior year at Estrella Foothills High School he will inspire, believe in, and support future members and always greet them with a warm smile ready to spark a conversation. Thank you for being a wonderful example of how to build better members Duncan!
When I first met Owen we began talking because we share similar views on the vegan diet. After discussing the values of FBLA, I found that he valued leadership and education. Additionally, I and other state officers, noticed that Owen stood out as a leader among his chapter. At the end of the National Leadership Conference I gave him the BBM pin and acknowledged him for demonstrating the FBLA core values.
I first met Derek Barlow at this past State Leadership Conference. Derek a member of El Capitan High School showed me what it truly means to be a friend and a leader. He showed immediate kindness toward me upon our first meeting. He demonstrated that he was a driven individual with goals he was passionate about. At the 2017 National Leadership Conference those traits of Derek that made him a great member and leader were amplified as he attended the Institute for Leaders at NLC. I cannot wait to see what he will do this upcoming year in FBLA. Thank you Derek for being an outstanding member!
