The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and the Class of 2019 are combining forces in effort to make the annual candy gram fundraiser a bigger success. The fundraiser’s purpose is to help the Class of 2019 raise money for their senior class prom, as well as future FBLA functions.

After a few years of inactivity due to lack of student participation, Business Education teacher and new sponsor Bruce Ruddock has reestablished the school’s FBLA chapter.

FBLA members will sell candy canes personally from Monday, Dec. 3 through Tuesday, Dec. 18. FBLA tables will be set up outside of room 134 on Monday, Dec. 10 through Thursday, Dec. 13.

Class of 2019 members chose to sell their candy canes in the cafeteria during one lunch from Monday Dec. 3 through Tuesday, Dec. 18.

Students are asked to buy a candy cane for $1 and have it sent to someone from them or anonymously. They will be delivered on Wednesday, Dec. 19 to their 1B class.

Junior Nick Copeland, new to FBLA this year, is excited to help raise money to attend spring competitions in areas such as creating business plans and public speaking.

“I think this is a great way to bring in money for our new club,” Copeland said. “I want to raise enough money to send everyone to competitions.”

Class of 2019 sponsor Mrs. Gillespie has led the annual fundraiser for three years and hopes that combining with FBLA will be more profitable.

“The senior class enjoys selling candy grams before the holidays because the fundraiser is all inclusive and puts smiles on students’ faces,” Gillespie said.  “So, I’m hoping that together we can help each other.”
