Kennett High School entrepreneurs reach finals

07/17/2013 11:19AM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print, Schools


Kennett High School’s FBLA Entrepreneurship Team advanced to final round of competition in the Future Business Leaders of America National Competition held in Anaheim, California.  The team of Kiera Judge, Kristen Miller and Julia Rivera qualified through preliminary testing with 14 other teams nationwide to make their final presentations to the national panel of judges. 

Kiera, Julia and Kristen were first-place winners in the area of entrepreneurship at the Pennsylvania State conference held in Hershey earlier this year. Representing Pennsylvania in Anaheim in the same event, the girls advanced to the final round of 15 (in an estimated field of about 100).

Accompanied by retiring KHS teacher Mike King and his wife Ellen, who has been a teaching assistant at Bancroft Elementary, as well as parent and Mock Trial mentor Lenny Rivera, the team arrived in Anaheim on June 26 and participated in competitive rounds through June 29.  The conference, held June 27 through 30, included more than 9,000 participants from every state and schools from around the world.

The FBLA-PBL National Awards Program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. At the State Leadership Conference, the students competed to become eligible to compete at the National Leadership Conference.

Kiera Judge is the daughter of Douglas and Diane Judge of Landenberg. Kristen Miller is the daughter of Greg Miller and Carol Miller, both of Avondale.  Julia Rivera is the daughter of Leonard Rivera of Avondale and Gayle Lafferty of Glen Mills.  All three are rising seniors at Kennett High School.
