Basore was high scorer on parliamentary test
At the state Future Business Leaders of America conference last week in Topeka, Ally Basore, a junior at Centre High School, was designated the state parliamentarian for the second consecutive year.
She won the honor by being the top scorer on the parliamentary law test.
As parliamentarian, Ally assists the presiding officer in following the rules and getting sponsorships for FBLA events. She also helps organize them. This year, she was in charge of presenting changes in the organization’s bylaws.
She is looking forward to serving as an officer another year.
“I’m not as nervous this year,” she said. “The first year, I wasn’t sure of what I was expected to do or what the team did.”
Ally plans to run for a national office this summer at the national conference.
She was a member of the parliamentary procedures team that finished in fifth place. Other members were Kate Basore, Kristin Vinduska, Abigail Svoboda, and Max Svoboda.
The business ethics team of Conner Montgomery, Callie Riffel, and Carissa Shields placed sixth.
Justin Bina finished ninth in business communication.
