Port Angeles Business Students Attend Regional ConferencePort Angeles, Wash. – “Not the steady rain or a two-hour bus breakdown deterred our Port Angeles High School chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) from a successful day of competition,” reported Bernie Brabant, co-advisor for the student organization.”  Pam Helpenstell serves as advisor with Brabant.

“We had 32 FBLA members from Port Angeles compete in the Puget Sound Region Winter Conference held February 4th at Pacific Lutheran University,” Brabant continued. “This conference is a qualifier for our state conference held in Spokane in April.  There were 455 students competing from 18 chapters from the Puget Sound Region. We had 21 members qualify for state including 5 who placed first in their event.
