A group of McNary high School students headed to the the Future Business Leaders of America state competition this week with hopes of improving on top regional finishes in a variety of events.

Judy Jiang, Jena Ozenna and Stacey Titchenal claimed the top spot in business decision making at the regional competition and will see how their acumen holds up against the best in the state.

“They’ll give us a scenario involving a business problem and we’ll have 20 minutes to come up with a solution using different management principles and present it to the judges,” Ozenna said.

Alexandra Martino took first in business communication at the regional meet and will put her skills to use in the event at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland. The event tests students’ abilities to communicate effectively in a business environment, she said.
