QCHS has FBLA state champion

Avadar Brownlee of Quakertown Community High School won the state’s Future Business Leaders America state com­pe­ti­tion and qual­i­fied for nation­als. Her tri­umph came in the Human Resources Management com­pe­ti­tion.

“Avadar did a phe­nom­e­nal job and I couldn’t be more proud of her accom­plish­ment,” said Sandi Frisch, the fac­ul­ty advi­sor to the FBLA club. “This is her first year with FBLA and she’s a ded­i­cat­ed stu­dent and great team mem­ber.”

Earlier in the school year Avadar was named a Commended Student in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. She scored 1500 on the SAT and has a GPA of 4.3.

The top four fin­ish­ers at states advance to the nation­al com­pe­ti­tion. While Avadar, a senior, is the lone QCHS stu­dent to do so, sev­er­al oth­ers placed in the high­ly com­pet­i­tive tour­na­ment, which is judged by pro­fes­sion­als in their var­i­ous fields. Juniors Katie Muller and Kiersten Williams fin­ished sev­enth in Graphic Design. Senior Khushi Vandra was ninth in Supply Chain Management, and senior Eliza Menser was 10th in Agribusiness. Eliza has qual­i­fied for states three years in a row.

“I am so proud of our team,” Mrs. Frisch said. “Everyone real­ly did excel­lent work and rep­re­sent­ed Quakertown and them­selves very well.”
