Kinnelon High’s FBLA Jack-O-Lantern Jamboree

November 26, 2013

Raihan Sayeed is a student at Loyola University, where he is currently focused on premedical and business studies in hopes to one day become a doctor. As a high school student Ray Sayeed was very involved in various organizations including Key Club and the Future Business Leaders of America.

The Future Business Leaders of America – Phi Beta Lambda is a non-profit organization that works to prepare students for business and business-related careers. The group was first established in 1937 and is currently made up of local chapters run by business teachers, school officials, businesspeople, and members of local communities. The high school division, the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), is composed of 215,000 members.

To give a recent example of the benefits high school students receive from FBLA membership, consider the Jack-O-Lantern Jamboree coordinated in Kinnelon, New Jersey this past October by members of the Future Business Leaders of America club of Kinnelon High School. Members of FBLA worked after school to organize and coordinate activities such as bake sales, pumpkin carving, and face painting. Prior to the event, the students promoted the jamboree with fliers at supermarkets and on local billboards and also discussed the event on the KHS morning show. Through this event, members of the FBLA are able to get a taste for the business world by learning how tasks are broken into corporate functions and how departments work together successfully.
