Mater Lakes Academy Places High in FBLA District Competition

Miami, FL, Monday, February 5, 2017 – Mater Lakes Academy’s FBLA competed at their district competition on Friday, January 26th.  MLA’s FBLA had 42 members place in their respective categories.

“The students spent several weeks preparing for the district competition,” said Mr. Giovanni Lorenzo, FBLA Sponsor.  “It is gratifying to see their hard work pay off as they competed and it shows in their results.”

This is the largest amount of students that Mater Lakes Academy has had place for state with finals beating last year’s total of 26 students.  Over 50 students competed and for twenty-five of them it was their first time competing for FBLA.  5 of the 42 students that placed in the state competition for this year are competing at the state level for the second time.  One of the students that falls in to that category, Anny Licor, not only competed in the state level last year but as well as the national level.

FBLA members will compete at the State Conference in Orlando, FL the weekend of March 16-19.  Once students compete at the state level and place to compete nationally, they will then go Baltimore in June for a four-day conference.  The National Leadership conference is the highest level of competition for FBLA members. FBLA will have created partnerships with industry leaders to design and judge their competitive events.  Students achieving national ranking can earn scholarships through FBLA and their partners.

“All I can say is wow,” said Mr. Rene Rovirosa, Principal at Mater Lakes Academy.  “It is amazing to see how far our programs have come.”

Mater Lakes Academy is a Miami-Dade County Public Charter School, with students enrolled in 6th – 12th grade.  Mater Lakes Academy has been open since the 2006-2007 academic school year, and is currently in its 12th year under the direction of Principal Rene F. Rovirosa, and is an A school for both the middle school and the high school.  For more information, visit the school’s website at www.materlakes.org.
