BPA students compete

Lewiston High School Business Professionals of America (BPA), attended Regionals on Jan. 13. BPA is a national program where students get to compete in teams or individually in business role play events, engage in leadership within their community and meet other business students and professionals from across the state and country.
At regionals, many students found themselves placing high enough to compete at the state level. Seyi Arogundade (12), placed first in Prepared Speech. Payton Finch (12), placed second in Extemporaneous Speech. Patience Rose (12) placed first in Advanced Interview Skills. Cathryn Ho (11) and Marissa Johnson (11) placed second in Visual Design Team-Pilot.
