The Santa Fe Trail Future Business Leaders of America drove to Topeka on Friday, Oct. 28, 2016, to have a proclamation signed by Gov. Sam Brownback. The proclamation recognizes American Free Enterprise Day in Kansas, which is held each year on November 15.

American Free Enterprise Day has been celebrated by FBLA since 1976 and recognizes the achievements of America’s free market economy. The SFT FBLA Chapter will be celebrating American Enterprise Day by sponsoring a guest speaker on Nov. 15. A school wide game of Monopoly is also planned for that week.

What is FBLA? Future Business Leaders of America is the premier organization for students pursuing a career in business.
