Katelin Rose Wirth, granddaughter of Hilbert and Fran (Pratcher) Haas of Lehighton, has been selected to attend the FBLA Leadership Conference at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in April.

Katelin is a senior at Wilson Junior-Senior High School in Tioga, Pa. and parliamentarian of her school's FBLA chapter.

This is the second time Katelin has attended the leadership conference, as she was also selected as a freshman.

Katelin is the daughter of Roger and Susan (Haas) Wirth, of Tioga. She is the niece Kenneth Hass of Lehighton. She is also the granddaughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Frank Wirth of Schnecksville.
