Utah Senator Mike McKell Presents to FBLA Club
FBLA students had the chance to hear Senator Mike McKell teach them about the two “E’s”: Economics & Entrepreneurship. He shared facts about the strength of Utah’s economy and students enjoyed a Q&A session with him. They asked questions about Utah’s housing market, supply chain issues, future employment opportunities, and what his thoughts were on the most critical trait if starting a business; His answer? “Persistence” and then he emphasized the value of hard work and taking risks. Senator McKell was incredibly personable and immediately had a great rapport with students. Abbie Bown, FBLA V.P. said, “I loved that I was able to hear from a politician in person, I didn’t have to have it translated and distorted to me through the media, I got to hear his original thoughts and words! “ Thanks Senator McKell for sharing your knowledge! Students are always welcome to join FBLA--applications are still being accepted.
