College Bound … ADVENTURES PAST SKEETERLAND
Congratulations to the MHS BPA Students! Mesquite High School Students "Uncovered Their Magic" at the Business Professionals of America National Leadership Conference.
The Business Professionals of America (BPA) 2013 National Leadership Conference, “Uncover Your Magic,” was last week from May 6-12, 2013 in Orlando, FL. Mesquite High School had 29 students who joined 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.
After the competitions were complete, Mesquite High School had one group named 1st Place National Champions in the event of Small Business Management. This group consisted of Benny Thomas, Rudy Abrams, Tammy Thai and Ruby Moreno.
In addition, Mesquite High School placed Top Ten in the Nation in the events of Presentation Management (5th Place). This group consisted of Caleb Young, Gabriel Green, Alexus Page, and Melanie Cephas. Alexus Page excelled as well in Digital Media Production and was named 4th Place in the nation in that event as well.
Please congratulate these students on their outstanding achievements. They are a perfect example that hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.
Mrs. Jensen, Ms. Ritter, and Coach Graham
