Owens was also chosen as a finalist for a prestigious FBLA scholarship.
In the elections held at the conference, sophomore Marcus Peters was elected JSRCC regional president. Peters will also serve as the Virginia state vice president representing the JSRCC Region when he is installed at the FBLA State Leadership Conference in April.
Carl McWhorter and William Griffin serve as FBLA faculty advisors.
