Beebe Jr. High FBLA reached two mile stones this year by not only becoming the largest Junior High FBLA Chapter in the Nation, but also finishing first in the District V FBLA competitions for the 4th year in a row.

Beebe Junior High FBLA finished the competition with a record 99 points overall surpassing their own record from last year of 88 points. Points are given according to how each chapter places in each event. 1st place receives 5 points, 2nd place receives 4 points, 3rd place receives 3 points, 4th place receives 2 points and 5th place receives 1 point. If the chapter does not finish in the top five places out of the 25 schools competing, then zero points are awarded. Beebe placed in 25 of 31 events and did not place in only 6 events.

Five members not only placed in the district, but also place in the state. Parker Pruitt, Cecily Sanders (District V Secretary), Mary Durr, Whitney Warden and Sammy Kearney did so well on their individual district competitions they received state recognition, which is extremely difficult to do. Three of those four members also received National Recognition. Parker Pruitt and Cecily Sanders were recognized for their design of the Beebe Junior High FBLA Web Page, which can be seen at www.beebefbla.com and Mary Durr was recognized for her work in Keyboarding Applications 2 in which she received a perfect score. National Recognition is the highest award to achieve at the Junior High FBLA Level.
