Centura Students to Present at State FBLA

Partnership with Business17

Rachel Baustert and Macy Baldwin, are preparing this week to present their Partnership with Business Project at the 55th Annual FBLA State Leadership Conference. After submitting a report about the project, Nebraska FBLA informed the pair that they were selected to compete in the finals, and would be giving an oral presentation on Thursday, April 6, 2017.

The two have been working with Katie Bohling, owner of Katie Cakes, to assist her with marketing her business. Baustert and Baldwin have created items such as a logo, brochure, flyer, cost analysis and Instagram page. An added bonus of pairing with Katie Cakes, was the opportunity to bake, decorate, and eat the cupcakes!

Last year Baustert and Kaitlyn Dethlefs were awarded an 8th Place honor in this category. Baustert, talked about entering this competition and stated, “Partnering with a businesses has taught me about the business world and has helped prepare me for my future.”
