This summer STC students Mary O'Keeffe and Claire RedingerSTC in ATL 2016 traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in the National Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Leadership Conference and placed 10th in the Publication Design contest.

They traveled with six other students from Lincoln Southwest and their adviser, Mr. Hinrichs, who is a '99 STC alum. According to Mr. Hinrichs, the girls were an absolute delight to have on the trip, and he was honored to be able to take them on their first trip to nationals. This was the first time STC had qualified/sent students to compete at nationals, so for the girls to place in the top ten on the first trip is quite an achievement. There were over 10,000 students that attended this national conference who competed in over 70 different events, so competition is pretty tough, but Claire and Mary came through in true STC fashion!

During the conference the Nebraska FBLA delegation attended an Atlanta Braves game on July 1. Pictured are two current STC students in addition to three STC alums.
