Also attending from GCHS were Tia Shumway and Jordyn Reidhead. A dozen students from Grand County High School were among the more than 1,600 participants who attended the annual Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) state convention held at the Davis Convention Center in Layton. Two of Grand’s students placed among the top 10 in a competitive event at state, with junior Grace Osusky placing fourth in impromptu speaking and senior Jacob Johnston placing fifth in agribusiness. The GCHS chapter also received an award certificate for having the second-largest percentage increase in membership since last year. Grand’s chapter currently has 22 registered members, more than three times what it had last year, according to adviser Jeff Richards.
