BHS students qualify for national contest


Four top Bandera High School students will attend the Business Professionals of America (BPA) 2011 National Leadership Conference, "Stand Out From the Crowd," in Washington, DC.
From May 4 through May 8, Bandera chapter members, Elijah Escobedo, Kelsey Dyes, Cassie Lutz, and Jeffrey Jensen will join over 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.
In state competition, Elijah Escobedo received a perfect score and won the first place medal for Database Applications; competing in Desktop Publishing, Cassie Lutz also received a first place medal; Kelsey Dyes received a third place medal for Extemporaneous Speaking; and Jeffrey Jensen placed fourth with a medal in Advanced Spreadsheet Applications.
"The conference will be the culmination of a school year's worth of business skills education and training which members of the local chapter of Business Professionals of America at Bandera High School have received," said chapter advisor, Colleen Lewis, who teaches advanced computer application classes. Lewis has also been chosen as a 20- year National Honor Advisor for Business Professionals of America. She will receive that recognition at the national conference.
