Hesston Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Sponsor Dori Roth was honored with the Sponsor Of The Year award at State competition.
Roth has been the FBLA sponsor for the past 15 years at Hesston High. Roth was nominated for the award by senior Sabrina Wollenberg, a four-year participant in the FBLA program.
“She deserves so much. We did this all behind her back, too. We didn’t tell anyone, but we’ve known since Thanksgiving. And she deserves everything. She’s been doing this for 15 years and she is one of the best advisors. I am grateful for her and it was an honor for me to do this for her,” said Wollenberg.
FBLA students said Roth has been a constant source of encouragement and energy.
“She’s a good motivator. She is really positive in how she talks to all of us,” said Scott McGehee.
Roth’s enthusiasm for students’ success is infectious during competitions and in the classroom.
“She gets more excited that we do. She’s always happy for you, no matter what place you get,” said Libby Reimer.
In the letter written to nominate Roth, Wollenberg said the Hesston FBLA group is much more than an organization. It becomes a family that rejoices together and consoles each other.
