His students maintain business teacher Pat Holt was a natural to be named Future Business Leaders of America Adviser of the Year, an honor he received at the group’s national convention last summer.

“He’s willing to sacrifice hours of his own time to ensure student’s success,” FBLA State President senior Sophie Sun said.

Holt indicated the honor made an impact.

“It is almost like an underline or an exclamation point on the efforts of the last 12 years,” Holt said.

Holt was officially given the title at the Maryland State Convention last April and recognized at the National Convention in Atlanta, Ga. along with other advisors from around the world.

FBLA’s Regional Competition will be held here in Jan. since three students here are on the State Officer Board and senior Luke Sturiale is the Regional Vice President.

Qualifiers from the Regional Competition will advance to the State Competition, and qualifiers from States will go on to the National Competition in Calif., Holt said.

Holt has high expectations for our FBLA.

“It continues to explode,” Holt said. “The students here are just so phenomenal that if you build an environment where they can lead and engage they’re going to do it.”
