Help send a Future Business Leader of America to the 2012 FBLA National Conference in San Antonio, TX to represent the State of Oregon.

Hello Everyone! I am Caleb Lovett, and I am a junior at Centennial High School in Gresham, Oregon. I am a member of an organization called FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America). FBLA is the premier association for business, leadership, and community service, for over 250,000 students worldwide. FBLA's goal is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through leadership and career development programs.

My partner and I worked tirelessly on our Business Leadership project starting early December 2011. On April 12th, 2012 we represented our school well by taking 1st place in the State of Oregon for our Business Leadership Proposal against hundreds of other students from all over the state. Our business plan focused on an elaborate plan for a food cart leasing company. We now have the honor to represent Oregon in the National Business Leadership Conference (NBLC) in San Antonio, TX in just two short months. During this annual event, FBLA members from across the nation participate in business related leadership development workshops, tour business and corporate facilities, elect national officers, as well as participate in national competitive events.

The cost to attend this conference is $2,000, which I simply don’t have. With your donations and support, my partner and I could take first in the nation! Your donations will make a big difference in our lives, allowing us to travel where we have yet to explore, and learn priceless lessons to help guide our futures. Please help give us our time to shine. I thank you for any sized donation you can afford. If you can’t afford a donation, any encouraging words or a “share” of this site on a public network such as Facebook or Twitter, would be appreciated. Thank you so very much, and I look forward to representing Oregon the best I can in Texas!
