Congratulations to Emily Scrupps! Emily is a junior this year at Odessa High School and has been a member of FBLA for three years. Emily is an incredible asset to the Odessa FBLA team.

Emily has done an incredible job leading her team before and after Covid-19 by stepping up repeatedly to complete projects and meet deadlines for both SBLC and NLC. This year, Emily played a huge role in her team’s Community Service Project. WIth their hard work, her team entered over 3,700 names to create a digital cemetery map for their community. Emily showed a strong dedication to this project by double checking all entries, and finalizing map details before sharing this historic document with the Town of Odessa. Going even further, Emily then assisted the Odessa Lion’s Club to develop a plan to place a waterproof version of the map at the cemetery. Emily then created her team’s PowerPoint, and organized them to successfully compete in the Community Service Project, which later placed 10th in the nation.

Additionally, Emily also assisted the rest of her chapter in figuring out how to create professional entries and didn’t stop until everyone’s projects were officially entered. Emily’s dedication and diligence led to the success of her team’s Community Service Project, which was also awarded a $2,000 prize from Lead4Change and was featured in the Spokesman Review.

Emily’s hard-working personality and her responsibility are what make her an outstanding member of FBLA. She is a student that is ambitious and exceeds all expectations.

Emily’s commitment and incredible work ethic truly sets her apart as an outstanding member in Washington FBLA!
