Business Professionals of America, better known as BPA, is a club advised by Davey Steele. Volunteer and community work is emphasized, and characteristics such as ambition, sociability, poise and leadership are valued.
The club is very small, featuring only seven members. Only one is a returning member, senior, Ari Feucht. New this year are juniors, Shelby Hobbs and Aubrey Marran; and seniors, Lauren Auer, Daniel Brereton, Selah Chavez and Leia Smith.
Auer, Chavez, Marran, and Smith won first place in both BPA regionals and state in the Broadcast News Production Team Event with their broadcast ¨Now News.¨ Six members qualified for nationals.
¨If you´re thinking about joining BPA, it is absolutely worth it,¨ said Marran. ¨There’s so many categories you can compete in and it’s a great way to create new friends and challenge yourself.”
