Twelve students from the Tartan Chapter of Business Professionals of America (BPA) attended the BPA National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla. May 8-12. Over 6,000 students, advisors and guests from throughout the United States participated in BPA’s 47th National Leadership Conference.

Tartan had an impressive showing this year, as Emily Phuong Le placed second in Advanced Interview Skills, and Christie Her placed 14th in Advanced Office Systems and Procedures.  The Tartan Chapter was also one of five schools in the Nation recognized for their BPA Cares-Community Relief project – written by Christie Her and Belinda Xiong, which described their participation with hosting Red Cross blood drives and their Pennies for Patients fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

In addition, all twelve students won a national Ambassador Torch award for their participation in community events: Aimee Yang, Michael Vang, Emily Phuong Le, Bao Yang, Christie Her, Belinda Xiong, Mai Moua Vang, Tomi Olateju, Surina Lee, Kang Yang, Cheng Mor Vang & Cheethum Yang.
