The Bowdon High School FBLA visited IKEA in Atlanta on Friday, September 22, 2017.

Members were met at the entrance by Brenda Graves the Communications and Events Planning
Specialist. She welcomed the group and led them upstairs to the conference room where
Manager Jill Matherson shared the history of IKEA. She called in employees to share their story,
talked about benefits, and told of career opportunities available at IKEA. After a short video, the
group was divided and taken on a tour of the store with a marketing representative who gave
further insight on the business. Lunch was provided in the IKEA cafeteria where the students ate

Swedish food before they returned to Bowdon High.
