As of Tuesday, March 14, 2017
BOISE Grangeville High School recently had four students travel to Boise to represent the school at this year’s State Business Professionals of America (BPA) conference.
Junior Amrit Singh was awarded first place in his event of Economic Research. He now has the opportunity to attend the National BPA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla., May 10-14. His event consisted of gathering information on contractionary and expansionary fiscal policy and then writing a seven-page research paper promoting which policy would be most effective for the current economic status.
Senior McKenzie Kennedy placed sixth in Business Law and Ethics. Freshman Danielle Uhlenkott competed in Basic Office Systems and Procedures and junior Zach Stoner competed in Fundamentals of Web Design and Basic Office Systems and Procedures.
In addition to students competing in their individual events, they also attended a keynote address given by a motivational speaker, participated in a number of mini sessions (entrepreneurship, teamwork, creation of statutes), and leadership workshops.
“I am very proud of their hard work and dedication,” said GHS business and computers teacher and BPA advisor Bruce Wassmuth.
