Greenbrier West High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) in Charmco has received $1,000 for expenses through U.S. Cellular’s Community Connections, a program that provides sponsorship support to help youth groups pay for expenses such as travel, equipment and uniforms.

The release said Greenbrier West signed up on U.S. Cellular’s website and within 14 days rallied their friends, families and supporters to complete online activities that earned them the money.

The organization took 16 students to the State FBLA Conference in April, and eight students qualified to go to the National FBLA Conference in San Antonio, Texas, in late June through early July, so the award will go toward travel to the national conference.

“Groups like The Future Leaders of America provide invaluable experiences for youth in our community, and our Community Connections program was designed with them in mind," said Brandi McCune, area sales manager for U.S. Cellular. “We are happy to contribute to their work, and it’s great to see the community’s support to help them have a positive impact in the Greenbrier area.”
