The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Conference was held in Atlanta, GA, on June 27 - July 3. The local team of Brock Garrison and Melody Shannon represented North Lamar High School and the state of Texas in the Business Planning Competition. The duo placed eighth in the nation competing against 90 other teams from across the country.

In preparing for the competition, which was sponsored by H&R Block, Garrison and Shannon had to design a prospectus for a new business then give a presentation. Their placement in the competition earned them stage recognition alongside the top 10 groups and $100 as a team. North Lamar sponsors for this event are Yvonne Parson and Angela Shannon.
