It’s Greater to Give than to Receive


Cook High School’s Future Business Leaders of America participated in two service activities during December. Last month FBLA collected 250 cans to donate towards Feed GA Campaign which works in conjunction with Toys for Cook Kids. This month, FBLA collected toys to donate to the community. Toys for Cook Kids will donate toys and food to needy families in the county. We were excited to be able to donate to this worthy cause. 

In addition to Toys for Cook Kids, FBLA made treat bags for the faculty at Cook High. The students really enjoyed being able to make their teachers smile. What teacher doesn’t like a surprise full of goodies in their box?

Feed Georgia Campaign CHS FBLA Service Project


Cook High School’s Future Business Leaders of America just wrapped up one of their big service projects. Feed Georgia Campaign donates canned foods and toys to the needy during the holidays. FBLA will collect Toys for Cook Kids in December to complete this service activity.

FBLA is proud to share that 250 cans have been collected by Cook High School students and donated to help those in need. We hope that many families are able to benefit from this donation making their holidays extra special.

Making Adel Great for Future Generations

(Guest Speaker Brandie Dame)


Cook High School’s business classes including FBLA members enjoyed hearing from Brandie Dame, Downtown Adel Main Street Director on Monday, October 18, 2021. As a guest speaker to Mrs. Tillman’s and Mrs. Carter’s classes, she explained the process and hard work put into making downtown Adel a classic mainstreet in Georgia. Being a classic mainstreet isn’t just about a title. It’s about making Adel a thriving community for generations to come.

Mrs. Dame’s presentation was very informative and opened the students’ eyes as to what is involved in making a successful downtown. Many aspects of her presentation correlated with what students have been learning at CHS. Such things include the following: Facebook and social media presence (positives and negatives), interview process, making presentations, giving presentations, designing logos and marketing materials, planning events, and working as a team. Mrs. Dame’s presentation started a discussion about making business plans and how this real-world example correlated with FBLA’s region and state competition.

After Mrs. Dame’s presentation, it was awesome to see students get excited about what they can do for Adel in the future. Adel is a town where individuals work together as one to build a brighter future.

Cook High FBLA is off to a great start with our officer orientation (SLOTS) meeting. Our officers for 2021-2022 are Greg Olson (President), Caia Davis (Vice-President), and Barry Joiner (Secretary/Treasurer). They had great ideas for recruitment, meetings, and school service to get the year started. They have also planned several fun social activities and are ready to begin fundraising projects. Our officers designed and assembled a bulletin board so it is ready for back to school. We are back in the building at Cook High School and ready to soar to new heights with FBLA!
