BPA stands for Business Professionals of America. This is an amazing organization which allows students to compete in an array of business events both individually and as a team. The competitions start at the regional level at the Port Huron Baker College, with states following in March at the Amway Grand in Grand Rapids. The National Leadership Conference is held in various cities around the country each year.
Our very own Mrs. Denise Palmateer was chosen to
be the BPA adviser of the month for the State of Michigan!!!
This is a great achievement and we are all very thankful we get to work with a wonderful and dedicated person like her! If you click on the like above in the text you will be able to read why she was chosen for this great honor.
Well everyone we are back from Florida and we had an excellent time representing the State of Michigan! Even though we did not have anyone place in any events while at Nationals we still were able to participate in several exciting things! We had members in the Leadership academy which helped give our members training for how to be better leaders not only in BPA but in their local communtiy. We also had members participate in an Internship program where you help do several tasks for the organization. We thank you all for your continued support to our group!
A SPECIAL THANKS TO:
Four County foundation, CSB bank, Distruct Employees, Community members and the Parents for their generosity and continued support
