Warren County High School student August Palombo received fourth place in Hospitality Management at the Future Business Leaders of America National Conference held in San Antonio, Texas.The competition was part of a five-day conference for FBLA members around the nation.“We were really proud of all our chapter representatives this year at the FBLA National Conference,” said Kari Burnett, advisor of the WCHS chapter. “We are thrilled our community could be so well represented by August and the other participants.”Palombo said the five days of meetings, tests and social activities were enjoyable. He said he heard a variety of talks from motivational speakers.“Probably the biggest thing I took from it was to be prepared and be ready for your opportunities and they will fall in place for you,” said Palombo, who added he was stunned by his fourth-place finish.The competitive event recognizes the importance of the hospitality industry and members who have the ability to help others enjoy both leisure and business travel.
