Miranda McGlocklin, Editor

On Friday, October 5, 2018 Northwood FBLA members attended the Fall New River Region Conference at Bluefield College. Once the 68 students arrived, they attended the opening session and observed the parliamentary procedures of FBLA, including:  Call to order, National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, FBLA Pledge, Introduction/Welcome, Chapter Roll Call/ Minutes, Virginia FBLA Report, Recognition, NLC Report, and Announcements. Northwood High School was honored along with George Wythe High School, Giles High School, and Tazewell High School for earning the Gold Seal Chapter status. The Gold Seal Chapter goes only to the top 15% of FBLA Chapters in the state of Virginia. After attending the opening session in Harman Chapel, the students were dismissed and had the opportunity to attend four FBLA related workshops.

Once the workshops had concluded, the students then loaded the bus for Wytheville to eat lunch. Students then returned back to Northwood High School to attend the end of fourth block.
