Eleven of the ECHS FBLA members attended the Fall Motivational Rally/Competition in Perry. Students were introduced to the state and region officers for the 2011-12 term. Award winners from the National Conference were announced and congratulated. Students were entertained by a motivational speaker. Once the rally was over, all 11 students competed in events such as economics, business law, banking and finance, sports management, hospitality management, health care administration, and computer applications. After the competition, the members went out to the midway to enjoy an afternoon of fun on the array of rides and tried their hand at winning some prizes.
