The BPA National Leadership Conference and Competitions will be held in Dallas, TX, May 9-13, 2018.
The WCHS/WACC Business Marketing Info Tech & Entrepreneurship Dept’s students competed well, pitted against the knowledge and skills of students from other schools from across the state.
As these students move on to engage in national-level competition, our community may take pride in knowing they represent Warsaw and Indiana well.
The costs of traveling to Texas and staying for the length of the conference are high, and our BPA Chapter will be looking to partner with local businesses wishing to support these students as they move on to the “next level”.
Business Professionals of America. Today’s students. Tomorrow’s business professionals.
