• FBLA Members – On to State!


    On February 1, 31 FBLA members from Freeman HS attended the 2017 Northeast Region FBLA Winter Conference at Eastpoint Church in Spokane Valley.  A total of 576 students from throughout the region competed in a number of business related areas, making this the largest regional conference in the state in the history of Washington State FBLA.   The top six competitors in each competition qualified for the state conference which will be held in Spokane during the third week of April.  Top finishers at the state competition earn the honor to compete at the National FBLA Conference in Anaheim this June.
