Akron High School Senior Spotlights 2021

We continue to recognize members of the Akron High School Class of 2021 as we move closer to the end of the school year.

Akron FBLA

Update from Akron FBLA Advisor, Ali Houston on their trip to Denver and state results:

The pandemic might have slowed us down, but it hasn’t stopped us. Today (April 20th) was full of behind the scenes business tours, TopGolf, cookie decorating, swimming, and then celebrating accomplishments with an overnight trip. I am so blessed to be able to work with these kids everyday! So proud of them and their persistence.

Sara Wylie has done an amazing job as State President. It was a hard year and she continually pushed herself to make the best out of a bad situation and move FBLA forward.
