The Future Business Leaders of America Annual Fashion show was held on March 2 in the Timberland auditorium.
The theme of this year’s show was “Hearts On Fire.”
All of the participants wore clothing in different shades of red and orange. They truly looked like they were “on fire.”
The students in Mr. Darby’s Carpentry class made all of the stage props. All of the proceeds will go towards assisting the FBLA members attend their national conference.
