During the month of November, twenty-four members of Fairbury FBLA conducted their annual American Enterprise project. This year, three classes of Fairbury Elementary fourth-graders were taught the meaning of American Enterprise, the importance of spending locally and the multiplier effect which happens when money is spent within the community. Third graders were able to set up a cookie baking business, bake cookies at the high school, and market their cookies to the high school and junior high students. With over $400 in revenue collected over three days, this year’s cookie sales were a big success! After paying all expenses, the remaining profit will be split between the three fourth-grade classes. Each individual class will decide how to spend their business profits. The annual American Enterprise project is enjoyed by all students. FBLA members enjoy working with the younger kids, and the fourth-graders love making a trip to the high school. “Overall, I thought this project was pretty fun,” FBLA President, Zane Grizzle said. “We (FBLA members) got a lot out of this project and were able to help fourth graders understand what goes into making a business and understand the American Enterprise System.

We had a lot of donors and even some double donations! The McCown twins Ashton and Ethan gave double which is taking the blood out of the body, taking the red cells, and giving back the fluids, plasma, and platelets. “I never did it before and said sure, might as well try it,” Ashton McCown said. Along with the twins was Ericka Kroeker and Drake Richtarik who also gave double. Thank you to everyone who donated blood today and thank you Nebraska Community Blood Bank for working all day and collecting the blood.
Melissa Dux, Fairbury High School business teacher, was given an award for Outstanding Contributions to Business Education by a Secondary Business Teacher during the Fall Nebraska State Business Education Association conference. Congratulations Melissa!
