Purser and Lovell
The Pepperell High FBLA team of Daniel Lovell and Joey Purser placed first in Computer Game and Simulation Programming to earn a spot representing Georgia at the National FBLA Leadership Conference in Chicago later this summer. The two competed with other students from across the state at the Georgia State Leadership Conference in Atlanta.

Lovel, a junior at Pepperell High, and Purser, a senior, programmed a top-down shooter game in which the hero must enter a computer network and destroy all of the malware and viruses along the network.  The rules of the contest required the game to be both entertaining and educational.  The game, designed by the two, taught players about the components of a computer network.
  
The Pepperell High School FBLA sent 15 students to the state event. Carter Babb, a senior at Pepperell, was the other top 10 finisher placing 6th in Business Law.  The law competition was a comprehensive test covering a wide spectrum of legal issues.

The Georgia FBLA State Leadership Conference is held annually in Atlanta with over 3,000 FBLA members from around the state competing, attending workshops, and networking with other students and business professionals.
