Greetings, Illinois FBLA! My name is Gatlin Miller and I am your State President from Mt. Vernon Township High School! I have been an active member in FBLA for the past 3 years, serving in leadership positions in my local chapter and area. Aside from my position as State President, I am also serving as the Southern Area Vice President and Chapter President. I am also an active member in Student Council, National Honors Society, Rotary Interact Club, Drama Club, Speech & Acting, Mock Trial, and Youth & Government. Furthermore, I serve on the Illinois State Board of Education Student Advisory Council, Cedarhurst Youth Ambassador Program, and Governor’s Cabinet Youth Commission. I hope to use the skills that I have attained through these experiences to help make this year one of the best yet, by not only accomplishing our goals, but also by setting the precedent for years to come. I can’t wait to CREATE new opportunities, as I LEAD with passion to INSPIRE the members of our organization to their fullest potential.
