Floresville High School BPA excels at state
Floresville High School students take time out from competing for a group photo during the BPA State Leadership Conference held March 6-8 in Houston.
Top students from Floresville High School attended the Business Professionals of America State Leadership Conference March 6-8 in Houston, where they competed against students from across Texas. These students represented FHS well, with numerous finishes as national alternates. Special recognition goes out to Alex Eckert, who placed second at the state level in Network Administration using Microsoft concepts competition. Alex will be attending the BPA 2014 National Leadership Conference, “Accelerate Your Future,” in Indianapolis, Ind., April 30 through May 4. Alex will join more than 5,000 other conference delegates from across the nation to participate in national-level business skills competitions, workshops, general sessions, and the national officer candidate campaigns and elections.
“The conference will be the culmination of a school year’s worth of business education and training which members of the local chapter of Business Professionals of America at Floresville High School have received,” said RheaNell Rogers, chapter advisor and CTE coordinator.
Business Professionals of America is a national organization for high school, college, and middle school students preparing for careers in business and information technology. The organization’s activities and programs complement classroom instruction by giving students practical experience through application.
