Se­nior Mon­tana Bar­ber took third place for Fu­ture Busi­ness Leader in Georgia dur­ing the con­ven­tion held on March 22 through March 24.

It wasn’t an easy task to get to near the top of the state. Bar­ber first had to sub­mit a re­sume and let­ter of ap­pli­ca­tion for the event, then joined oth­ers in an ob­jec­tive test over busi­ness knowl­edge that in­cluded sev­eral top­ics such as FBLA Or­ga­ni­za­tion, By­laws, and Hand­book; Na­tional Com­pet­i­tive Event Guidelines; Na­tional Pub­li­ca­tions; Creed and Na­tional Goals; Busi­ness Knowl­edge that in­cluded Ac­count­ing, Bank­ing, Law and more.

Bar­ber is the Chair­man of the Run at the Rock Color Run/Walk com­mit­tee and she has re­cently re­ceived an FBLA Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Award for com­plet­ing 500 Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Hours.

She has re­ceived numer­ous awards on the Re­gion level, the Fu­ture and Busi­ness FBLA Busi­ness Achieve­ment Awards and the FBLA States­man Award, and re­ceived numer­ous hon­ors at Rock­mart High School and is a mem­ber of the March­ing Band and Soc­cer team.

Her par­ents are Danielle and Jessie Bar­ber.

Bar­ber will ad­vance to Na­tional com­pe­ti­tion in June in San An­to­nio, Texas.

Over­all, the Rock­mart High School FBLA chap­ter did well at state too. The group was awarded fourth place in the state at the con­fer­ence for their March of Dimes Fundrais­ing ef­forts.

All the pro­ceeds from the Run at the Rock Color Run/Walk sponsored by RHS FBLA last May was do­nated to the March of Dimes which is a Na­tional Ser­vice Part­ner with FBLA.

This year’s Run at the Rock will be held this year on April 27 with the pro­ceeds be­ing do­nated to the Rock­mart Home­less Ini­tia­tive for this year’s event.
