GISH’s Fausett awarded first place at FBLA National Leadership Conference

Four students from the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter at Career Pathways Institute attended the FBLA National Leadership Conference in San Antonio from June 24 to July 2. The CPI students qualified for the national conference by placing first, second or third at the Nebraska FBLA State Leadership Conference. One incoming senior brought back special hardware from the national conference.

Isaac Fausett, who will be a senior at Grand Island Senior High, was awarded first place in the Help Desk category.

Scott Fox, Information Technology Pathway Instructor at GIPS, said Isaac is a technology enthusiast.

Isaac, a student in the IT Pathway at CPI, was named the Help Desk NE champion and continued to prepare for nationals. He spent the last six weeks reviewing Help Desk content and attending three formal practices. Fox said during one of the practices, Isaac did a performance round practice with GIPS IT specialists Phil Kuhl and John Hirschman, who helped fine tune Isaac’s performance. Kuhl is an IT Technician and Hirschman is a Network and Systems Administrator for the district.

Fox said Isaac has a lot of personal and academic technology experience. Isaac’s father and grandfather both work in IT.
