Scarf Day a Huge Success for FBLA

FBLA exceeded its Scarf Day goal by $2,000 this year.

The club on Friday raised $3,000 — well above the $1,000 they aimed, making them the No. 1 among FBLA’s around around the state raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Math teacher and FBLA Advisor Mrs. Dana Bowers said.

Scarf Day is a day where students have the opportunity to wear a scarf or buy up to five stickers to receive extra credit from teachers.

“Scarf day has been an occurrence at BASH for as long as anyone could remember,” Math teacher and FBLA Advisor Mrs. Dana Bowers. “Before me, it was Mrs. Shaw, and then the person before her, who has now retired.”

FBLA hosts this event annually, and each sticker is sold for $1.

Senior FBLA member Kasey Roberts said students love having the opportunity to both raise their grade and contribute to a good cause.

The money raised goes to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The club competes against other FBLA’s across the state to raise the most money.

“This is always something we look forward to each year as the proceeds go to a good cause,” Roberts said.
