Additionally, Kaleb Amofa, Butler Tech student from Northwest High School was named the BPA National Treasurer. In Amofa’s application to run for office he said, “I would love to be National Officer of Business Professionals of America for many reasons. BPA has done so much for me in the time I’ve been involved and I want to do the same for others. I have grown in many areas that are essential to life, such as public speaking, leadership, and teamwork. Everyone is a leader in their own way and being in BPA has helped me to become a better leader. I would like to become National Officer so that I can help all members throughout the nation bring out their inner leader.”

Congratulations to all of our winners and national qualifiers!
