Cassville Middle School has a new club this year -- Middle-Level Future Business Leaders of America.

The high school FBLA program has been successful for many years and the advisors felt it was time to start a new tradition in the middle school. The club has 25 paid members so far.

The first Middle-Level meeting was Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Cassville City Park. Twenty middle school members and four high school officers met to enjoy a few hours of fun and hard work.

To start the meeting, high school FBLA President Brittany Sanchez installed the newly elected Middle-Level officer team. Students were then divided into five teams of four people and given instructions for a scavenger hunt competition.

Every step of the scavenger hunt was related to FBLA and showed the group how FBLA can be a lot of fun, but must also include hard work and learning to work as a team. The activity also gave high school officers a chance to get to know to the middle school students and provide a learning opportunity for the middle-level officer team.

"I look forward to building a new program within the middle school and providing students a way to learn the importance of community service, teamwork, and dedication before they come into the high school," said Chelsea Powers, CMS FBLA advisor.
