Wyatt Herren

Craft Fair Coordinator 

Hello!! My name is Wyatt Herren and I am proud to say I’m one of the Craft Fair Coordinators. This will be my first year as an FBLA officer, but overall this will be my second year in FBLA. I have competed at districts, but I unfortunately did not proceed to state. I think districts was my favorite event  because I got the experience as an FBLA member what competition looks like, and what FBLA supports in the great state of Colorado. It was very fun, I loved the events and not mention I was apart of the team who won Clue Room!! I am a Sophomore in Cherokee Trail High School. Even though FBLA takes a lot of my time I still am able to enjoy hiking, snowboarding, and traveling . I am apart of Outdoors club and that allows me to enjoy the outdoors in all kinds of ways!!

I always have a great time competing at districts and state and I cant wait for the many experiences that I have yet to come! In my free time I like to play tennis, watch Netflix and walk my dog.
