Three Shaler Area High School students qualified to compete at the Future Business Leaders of America’s State Leadership Conference after placing in the competitive events program at regions.

Seniors Marissa Fukas took first place and Jeremy Meyer took fourth place in Accounting 1; and sophomore Josh Chechak placed third in Intro to Business.

The Future Business Leaders of America’s Region 13 Leadership Conference was held on Dec. 11, at The Fez, in Hopewell, and included students from 15 school districts in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, and Clarion counties.

The Shaler Area students each took a 100-question test to challenge their knowledge in each event. Accounting I tests the student’s understanding of basic accounting principles and procedures, including computation, economics, and personal finance. Intro to Business tests the student’s knowledge of basic financial concepts including entrepreneurship, management, and marketing.

Fukas, Meyer and Chechak will represent Shaler Area and compete at the State Leadership Conference on April 8-10, in Hershey.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
