Another State Leadership Conference is now filed away in photos, videos, and countless memories for the Morris Area BPA chapter! It can be assumed that the members all had something special happen to them. What with 5 National Leadership Conference qualifier in contests, 9 individual and chapter achievement awards, nearly 30 Statesmen Torch Recipients, and multiple Top 10 finishers: the attendees should be proud of the attention they brought to the chapter, school, and community as a whole!
Here are some of the specific results:
1st Place, Network Design Team, Jason Rinkenberger, Kelsey Curfman, Matthew Ohren, and Hailey Thielke
1st Place, Small Business Management Team, Aaron Jones, Haley Erdahl, Lexi Mahoney, and Brooke Mattson
