Members of the Investment Club and the Raider FBLA chapter toured the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta on January 15, 2014. Throughout the tour, students reviewed the role the Federal Reserve Bank plays in the U.S. Economy and the banking industry. The students had a chance to discuss monetary policy, the direction of interest rates, and even had a chance to sit in the Boardroom.

Marketing Field Trips to World of Coke and the Atlanta Hawks

Throughout the month of December, the FBLA studied Marketing. On Friday, December 6th, 2013, ten Raiders attended a Sports Marketing Event with the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks staff led the students through a Hawk’s marketing competition, they heard from various marketing professionals, and were also able to attend the game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers.  The Hawks came through with a big win over the Cavaliers, 108-89, to close the day on a positive note.

As part of the marketing study, students also had a chance to tour the World of Coke museum.  The tour provided FBLA members with an opportunity to experience the fascinating story of the world’s best-known beverage brand.
