While in Chicago, the Cinco Ranch representatives had the opportunity to compete in individual and group events, navigate and experience Chicago’s many attractions (Navy Pier, John Hancock Tower, Chicago River Boat Tour and the Blue Man Group) and socialize with other FBLA members from around the world. “I loved being able to compete and attend various workshops,” Cinco Ranch FBLA member Tiffany Yu said. “Most of all, I enjoyed exploring the city of Chicago with my friends.”

At Nationals, Cinco Ranch FBLA as a whole also received numerous awards and recognitions. The Cinco Ranch FBLA Chapter was recognized as the largest chapter in the Mountain Plains Region and the ninth largest chapter in the country. Additionally, Cinco Ranch FBLA had three students place in their competitive events: Julie Liu and Vennela Pothugunta placed fourth as partners in E-Business, while Meghana Pothugunta placed eighth in FBLA Principles and Procedures.

Proud of their achievements, the Cinco Ranch FBLA Chapter competitors returned home with amazing memories. When asked t her thoughts about the trip, member Faith Matheson replied, “It was a great experience qualifying for and going to Nationals. I can’t wait until next year!”

FIRETHORNE HOSTS WELCOME BACK LUNCHEON FOR WOLMAN ES TEACHERS AND STAFF – Firethorne hosted a “Welcome Wolman Elementary” Back to School Staff Luncheon at the Firethorne Community Center to help launch the Katy ISD 2015-16 school year. Ray and Jamie Wolman Elementary (RJWE) School Principal Kelly Ricks, along with 130 enthusiastic teachers and administrative staff members, attended the luncheon that kicked off the fourth year of the school. Wolman is located at 28728 North Firethorne Road off FM 1463 within the 1,400-acre Katy/Fulshear master-planned community.

According to Ricks, enrollment has increased with the record-breaking growth of Firethorne during the school’s first three years. Reflected in this expansion are the 13 Wolman Elementary School team members who are Firethorne residents (vs. three in 2012). Several are mothers who have children at the school as well. The school is named for Arlan “Ray” and Jamie Wolman, who have dedicated their careers to the education of Katy youth and continue to volunteer at their namesake school.
