FBLA — where business leaders are created

September 16, 2021
ALTON — Jennifer Cove, Prospect Mountain High School teacher and Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) advisor, addressed members of the Alton Centennial Rotary club last Thursday about what the goals and objectives are to prepare high school students on how to become business leaders.

Cove's background in business more than qualifies her to teach and advise students on how to become business professionals. She has a business background that includes working within the corporate world for five Fortune 500 corporations, many years as an executive team leader.

Her background also includes a B.A. & B.S. from Salve Regina and a MS in Business Management & Organization from Antioch School. Her vast knowledge, experiences and skills

are of great benefit for the FBLA Prospect Mountain students as its teacher and advisor for the 'Wolf Den,' a student-run program that includes operating the school store.

The FBLA is a nationally recognized organization created for business oriented students who want to learn more about the field of business and to develop business skills. The FBLA program

under Cove's leadership has grown, and since her arrival has earned awards both nationally and at the NH state level. Cove is also a FBLA NH state advisor.

What do FBLA student members do? They participate in regional and national events that can

result in winning scholarships, engage in community services, fundraising for charities, and take business courses. These are considered to be life-long character builders and be of service to others. The FBLA was founded in 1940.

"If there's one thing I want my students to understand, it's OK not to be OK, be authentic and lead by example," concluded Cove.

The Alton Rotary club meets every Thursday AM at the Alton Community Center for breakfast and discussions on how to help save and improve lives both locally and globally. If interested in Joining Rotary, call Membership Chair Duane Hammond, 569-3745.
