Alexa is the only FBLA member in the entire state to earn this national distinction and will be recognized at the National Leadership Conference for her achievement of 500+ hours of community service work.
The Southside FBLA chapter was also honored with the Hollis & Kitty Guy Gold Seal Award of Merit, making it one of only eight Arkansas chapters recommended to National FBLA for recognition. The group also earned the National September Sweeps, National Non-Stop November, and National Action Awareness Awards. Southside was the only chapter in the state to achieve all three.
