Gina McLachlan has a passion for business. Makes sense when looking at her job - a business teacher at Fulton High - and extracurricular sponsorship as the advisor for Fulton's Future Business Leader's of America group. And she hopes that her enthusiasm for the subject trickles down to her students in both of those settings.

"If they want to put the hours in, I'll be right by them putting the hours in, too," McLachlan said. "It's dedication for both them and me."
