WAUKESHA - Four Waukesha North High School students participated in and received honors for competing at a national conference against more than 10,000 other youth.

North students Tyler Tessmann, CJ Cahala, Adam Kouhel and Danica Molina traveled  to Nashville for the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) conference held June 29 to July 2.

Participants from across the United States and two countries were in attendance for this exciting conference to sharpen their core business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 60 business and business-related competitive events.

Tessmann and Cahala competed in Network Design and brought home second place which included a cash award of $500. Kouhel competed in Job Interview and brought home ninth place. Molina competed in Business Financial Plan and advanced to the final round of 15 national competitors in her event.

“These students have been very focused on doing their best in their perspective events. Having 100 percent of the Waukesha North FBLA competitors who won at the state level advance to the National finals was a tribute to their dedication,” said Michelle Hixson, co-advisor for Waukesha North FBLA.
