More than a dozen Brookings-Harbor High School students are getting their first lessons in working on a production line.

The BHHS Future Business Leaders of America club members are packaging and selling note cards as part of their business project.

"We're learning how to be an entrepreneur," said freshman Jack Chen, FBLA club president.

Club members, who attend Linda Brown's business class, packaged and decorated the cards in packs of eight as part of a student production line

Students teased each other and laughed as they worked, from repackaging the cards to tying ribbons, the finishing touch, around each set of eight.

The cards were donated by Chetco Federal Credit Union and feature the Coquille River Lighthouse.

Profits from sales of the cards will pay for the FBLA trip to the FBLA regional conference in Medford..

Susan Lunsford, the club's advisor from CFCU, helps Brown oversee the project.

"They're an energetic bunch of kids," said Brown.

The project has brought students through all steps of the business process, teaching students to create a business plan and figure cost and profits.

The club also runs a recycling business at the school. The group collects soda cans and bottles for recycling.

The projects prepare the students for upcoming FBLA competitions as well as funding the Medford trip.

Future Business Leaders of America was founded in 1937 and currently has a quarter million students preparing for careers in business and business-related fields

To purchase note cards contact Brown at (541) 469-2108.
