Business Professionals of America

 

I encourage youth who are interested in joining with others who are dedicated to servant leadership and who are business majors in college, to consider joining BPA. If you not in college yet, BPA has programs for middle school and high school students, too. If you are attending a college that does not have a BPA chapter, you can become a member of BPA Virtual Chapter program and also work to form a chapter at your university. 

BPA provides a foundation to personal growth and understanding of business that is so important in today's competitive business world.  Their National Leadership Conferences, which I have attended three times all over the U.S., are some of the best of any I have attended for any organization. You can compete, learn, experience things you will not be able to do anywhere else. I am proud to have received the Sherrell Wheeler BPA Scholarship, two-time Service Learning Award, two-time Ambassador Torch award, and three time top 10 national placement in Business Management Presentation. There is so much you can do within this organization, all of which will help you to be successful in the future.

I fully endorse this organization.

Here are some highlights about this outstanding organization for middle school students, high school students and college students.
