Peru, Nebraska– Scott Riley was elected to the FBLA-PBL National Officer Team as the Mountain Plains Regional Vice President. Riley is from Auburn, Nebraska and is pursuing a Business Administration-Management major with a minor in Computer Management Information Systems.

For the 2017-2018 school year, Riley will be the President of Nebraska PBL after he campaigned for the position during the 2016-2017 State Leadership Conference in Kearney. Recently, Riley also competed at the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California from June 24 to June 27.
