New Haven, Mo.
- New Haven High School is well known for it’s “Tradition of Excellence” but if there is one tradition that most people may not know about it's their Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Chapter.

This year New Haven had (correction 29) students qualify for State in 30 events.  Eleven of the 29 students qualified for state in more than one event.  What's more impressive is that Districts are not divided into "Classes", which means New Haven is competing against schools of all sizes like Jefferson City High School (largest high school in Missouri), making their achievements even more impressive.

The success of New Haven’s FBLA can be contributed to Business Teacher Mrs. Debbie River, who will be retiring at the end of this school year after establishing an FBLA dynasty, which has lasted for nearly 20 years.

She will be the first to say that it’s the students, but like any team, they're only as good as their leader.
