Shane Fagan, PA FBLA President 
Delaware Valley High School

Hello! My name is Shane Fagan, and I am currently a senior at Delaware Valley High School in Milford, PA. I have been an active member of FBLA for four years, competing and attending conferences on the local, state, and national levels. I completed the all four levels of the BAAs and three levels of the CSAs; in addition, I have been inducted into the National Business Honor Society, have completed the requirements for Membership Madness and Membership Mania, and have served as Parliamentarian, Treasurer, and President of my local chapter.

Outside of FBLA, I serve as class president, Relay for Life team captain, jazz band lead trumpet, and a member of both Mu Alpha Theta and the National Honor Society; I am a two-sport varsity athlete in both football and wrestling, too. For fun, I love listening to all types of music and hanging out with friends; also, a fun fact about me is that I live closer to New Jersey than I do my high school! My long-term goals in life are to attend one of the U.S. Service Academies or Navy ROTC programs at a private institution and major in quantitative economics, later entering a career in politics after my service career.

I am the youngest of three siblings with two proud parents, and my family has been formative in setting the foundation for my success. I believe that education is the right of every person, and FBLA has been the most outstanding organization in my personal development of competent, aggressive business leadership. I am truly humbled to work among the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee this year, and I cannot thank the membership enough for a second opportunity to leave a legacy of leadership, elevating our future beyond the 2017-2018 academic year.
