Here’s news from Moni Kaneti, reporter for the Mamaroneck High School Chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America:
From April 18th to April 20th, the local Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Mamaroneck High School Chapter attended the New York State Leadership Conference (SLC) at the Riverside Convention Center in Rochester, NY.
Missing three and a half days of school was definitely worth it for the Mamaroneck FBLA students. Competing in over 15 competitive events, students placed top five in ten competitions with Carlin Iannarelli and Moni Kaneti winning 5th in Community Service Project, Asher Hochman and Felicia O’Connor in 5th place for Digital Design and Promotion, and Jesse Vellue, Noah Velasquez and Jordan Garofalo placing 5th in Entrepreneurship.

Paul Morange finished third in Outstanding New FBLA Member, and Adam Nissinoff defeated the NYS FBLA Parliamentarian to take first in Parliamentary Procedure.
Also Asher Hochman, Martine Ossenfort, and Felicia O’Connor, placed second in Digital Video Production, Adam Nissinoff placed second in Technology Concepts, Brad Pogostin, Carlin Iannarelli, and Ken Pomeranz placed first in Website Design, Ken Pomeranz placed first in FBLA Principles and Procedures, and Brad Pogostin and Carlin Iannarelli placed first in Computer Game and Simulation.
All gained eligibility to compete at the National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas in June by placing first or second in their respective competitions. To add to our outstanding performances as a chapter, team and individual competitive events, Mamaroneck FBLA also successfully ran two students, Adam Nissinoff and Ken Pomeranz, for FBLA NY State Office.
We are now supporting Adam Nissinoff as acting NY FBLA State Parliamentarian and Ken Pomeranz as acting NY FBLA State Secretary. This year Mamaroneck FBLA received third in Chapter of the Year, ending our five year reign as the best chapter in NYS. However, this only paves the road for us to succeed at the 2013 State Leadership Conference and re-establish our place!
