Over 30 Laurens District High School students traveled to Dorman High School for the regional Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) District Leadership Conference.
Ms. Angie Dover, an LDHS business education teacher, and Mr. Peyton Crowder, a senior at LDHS, led the conference. Dover also serves as the FBLA Advisor at LDHS and as the FBLA District Director. Crowder serves as the South Carolina FBLA State Treasurer.
