Fossil Ridge High School senior Lisa Landwehr’s talent and love for business has allowed her to receive the highest award in Future Business Leaders of America. The America Award is a reflection on Landwehr’s dedication, time commitment, and high business achievement during her high school career. Of the 75 years of FBLA’s officiality, Landwehr is the first student in the Poudre School District to receive this level of recognition. “I would like to thank Karen Seeton,” said Landwehr, “she has been a great mentor and more importantly friend who has helped me get to where I am.” Landwehr will be recognized at the State and National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California.

In FBLA, there are four levels constituting the business achievement awards, each necessitating an increasing amount of work. The award system is as follows: Future, Business, Leader, and America. Landwehr’s work in promoting FBLA and gaining business knowledge have finally rewarded her. Her history in FBLA additionally involves multiple state championship titles in entrepreneurship and is recognized as a National Voting Delegate. She has done much for her club through many activities such as educational outreach in teaching students American enterprise and the inner workings of the US economy. “I gradually found passion for business by joining FBLA and DECA. Networking and meeting new people is something I am particularly fond of,” stated Landwehr.

Landwehr has committed to the Leeds school of business at the University of Colorado, Boulder with hopes of majoring in business management and a minor in finance. Not only is she planning goals within business, but with an interest in health care administration, Landwehr hopes to combine the two subjects for her future. “I cannot wait to graduate and see what my future has in store,” said Landwehr.

    I thought this was quality writing and I liked how you talked about her future in business and not just about what happened.

    This is very interesting and our school should be proud. I did not know that much about FBLA before, but this is very informational and I learned something today. Good coverage and a great accomplishment!

    This article is super interesting because it is written about something that has never been done before. I really liked the length of the article because it was informative but short and sweet. Good Job!

    I thought the article was good but could’ve used more quotes from Landwehr herself because its about her and she deserves to tell how she feels and her opinion on receiving the reward.

    Congratulations to Lisa! It takes time, passion, and commitment to achieve all four levels of Business Achievement awards. I do have to ask how did she manage to complete all of her including and finishing school work?
