FBLA Supports March of Dimes

Centura FBLA was involved again this year with bringing awareness to the March of Dimes organization and with fundraising for the cause. “We are thankful that senior members, Grace McDonald and Tessa Raymer, spearheaded this project for our chapter”, stated Mrs. Stacie Loeffelholz. These two members held a baby contest, a staff fundraiser, and a mini-march last fall. McDonald created a video summarizing the activities, which was shown on Centura Vision at a basketball game this winter.

“A huge thank you goes out to the March of Dimes for all of the research they have done. Without them, I don’t know where we would be with our boys.” These words of gratitude were expressed by Boelus resident, Molly Eilenstine, while sharing the story of the premature birth of her twin sons. The Centura Future Business Leaders of America were fortunate enough to hear Molly Eilenstine’s empowering experience with the March of Dimes organization in their efforts to aid mothers and infants in the event of prematurity.


CHS FBLA Partners with Pathway Bank

Each year Centura FBLA partners with a business to enhance student learning and assist with various needs. FBLA has partnered again with Pathway Bank to teach the elementary and high school students more about banking and saving money. On Monday, January 21, 2018, presentations were given to high school students by Pathway Bank.

Taylor Grabowski and Callie Gorecki each introduced Abby Hargens from Pathway Bank. Abby Hargens talked to the high school students about credit scores and what students can do to help maintain a good credit score. Earlier this year, Ms. Hargens was also able to give lessons to elementary students on short-term and long-term savings goals. She then provided information to the students on how they could create a savings account with Pathway Bank. For those students that created a savings account, we offered a “teller station” at the school multiple times throughout the year so that elementary students could deposit their money.

Last year, our Partnership with Business team was able to earn 8thplace at the State Leadership Conference in Omaha. This April our team hopes to present our project again at the State Leadership Conference. Our team hopes that our project has helped to educate students on saving money and that we can continue teaching students various aspects of banking.

If anyone has questions or concerns about the savings project, they can contact Mrs. Loeffelholz at ~Callie Gorecki
