In observance of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Week, Feb. 5-11, 2023, Carson High School parceled-out daily activities and emphases including “Fundraising Friday” where FBLA members sold raffle tickets for a chance to pie a teacher or administrator for charity. FBLA is the nation’s largest business career and technical student organization dedicated to inspiring and preparing community-minded business leaders.

The school started the week with “Motivational Monday” where they posted positive and encouraging messages around the school. Then “Tuesday Talks” allowed teachers to sign up to have FBLA students present on a variety of business-related topics such as: interview tips, resume tips, public speaking and professional business dress. After that was “Work Wednesday” where students dressed up in the attire of their future careers. Then “Thoughtful Thursday” had FBLA members spread gratitude by providing every student in the school the opportunity to write a thank you note for a faculty or staff member. Finally, as stated above, they finished the week with “Fundraising Friday.” They were able to raise nearly $200 on raffle tickets alone. All money raised will benefit Northern Nevada Dream Center.

The Northern Nevada Dream Center is a volunteer driven organization bringing hope and relief to the community by providing food, clothing, toiletries, household items and other necessities to neighbors in need. Most programs are mobile, reaching those isolated by economic and physical limitations. Additionally, the Dream Center offers free job readiness training, rent/mortgage assistance, emergency shelter and life recovery meetings.
