Reedy HS Business Professionals of America Students Advance to STATE!

Jan 16, 2018

Reedy High School Business Professionals of America competed at our Regional Leadership Conference this past Saturday. Blakely Pate made Reedy High School history by being our very first ever Reedy HS student elected to be a Regional President! She will be attending our State and National Leadership Conference, attending leadership training this summer, and will run next year’s Regional Leadership Conference (which serves roughly 1,200 members)! 

BPA also recognized the following students Anish Patel, Shawn Kheterpal, and Joseph Christopher for completing the second level of Torch Awards. BPA Torch Awards Program is designed to promote professionalism and leadership in both career development and personal growth. Less than 20% of all BPA students get to this level of Torch Recognition.

Our Business Professionals of America Region awards scholarships to seniors for their BPA service. Shawn Kheterpal was awarded one of the two $500 scholarships that are available.
