At a recent Board of Education meeting in Jericho, the board presented Jericho senior Matthew Herzog with a certificate for his honors at the FBLA Spring Conference, at the local, state and national level.
At FBLA’s Spring District Conference at Molloy College, where the team competed with business students all across Long Island, Herzog came in first place in accounting and first place in banking and financial systems. Meanwhile, at FBLA’s State Leadership Conference in Rochester, where the team competed with business students from New York State, he came in first place in securities and investments and fourth place in accounting.
The senior continued his success at FBLA’s National Leadership Conference in Chicago, where the team competed with business students from all over the country. Herzog came in first place in securities and investments in the nation.
“Matt exemplifies the skills of a distinguished business leader in and out of the classroom,” said teacher Nicole Izzo. “His focus, drive, and character motivate all that have the opportunity to work with him. His contributions here at Jericho have made an impact, and I have no doubts he will continue that same path in the business world.”
