Cars lined up Thursday, October 17th to participate in the paper shredding service, Shred360, at Blythewood High School. Blythewood’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) sponsored Shred360 because it helps with their dues for state, national, and district competition. “It lowers the cost for members so the more money FBLA is able to fundraise, the cheaper it is for the students,” said Ms. Garner, FBLA’s sponsor. The goal of FBLA is to raise enough money so that the cost of students is low. It also provides an opportunity for students to provide a service for their community.  

FBLA is the largest student-run business related organization in the United States, with 250,000 members. The purpose of FBLA is to prepare students for careers in business, the program assists them to become better employees and citizens. “FBLA helps students develop leadership abilities, prepares them for entry into a business-related occupations, and offers a setting where members compete at regional, state and national levels in business and technology curriculum.” said Mrs. Innocenti, Advisor of FBLA at Neshaminy High School.
