Elmwood-Murdock FBLA, National Champions
Four members of the Elmwood-Murdock Future Business Leaders of America chapter won the FBLA National Fall Stock Market Game. From September to December, Trevor Lockman, Brenna Backemeyer, Natalie Elwood, and Wyatt Stroy grew the initial virtual portfolio of $100,000 to over $114,000. The team beat dozens of others from across the nation to win the game. In spite of a decline in the October market, the members decided to invest in a variety of stocks which eventually moved them into first place with weeks of their initial investment. They were able to stay in first place during the rest of the semester.
