Scioto County Career Technical Center (SCCTC) students frequently lead the way at regional, state, and national competitions. They also frequently attend conferences and other professional gatherings showing off just how well they’re learning trades and leadership from their school.
Most recently, a group of students from the SCCTC Business Professionals of America (BPA) have enrolled for the Business Professionals of America National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California come the end of April.
The conference will bring together an estimated 6,000 delegates from across the country to vie for top honors in business and information technology skills competitions, attend leadership and professional development workshops, receive awards for community service activities and elect BPA’s 2023-2024 National student leadership team.
“For students and chapter advisors attending the National Leadership Conference, the event is the culmination of a year’s work.” Steven J. Mitchell, BPA’s executive director said. “We can’t wait to celebrate these students for the energy they have devoted to advancing to nationals in competitive events, sharpening their leadership and career skills and contributing to community betterment through service initiatives.”
The 2023 National Leadership Conference is presented by Certiport, a Pearson VUE business, the leading provider of certification exam development, delivery and program management services. Conference attendees can obtain valuable industry certifications at the event.
“I am always very proud of our staff and students who take the time to study, train and compete on the regional, state and National levels,” Superintendent Kyle Copley said. “Our students have been very successful over the years. We have won gold, first place, at the state level in 35 competitive contests since we began competing in BPA, SkillsUSA and HOSA as a school. I look forward to this time of year when our students get to compete and display the skills they obtained from our staffs instruction. Many of the students and staff take time to hone their skills outside of the school day and that shows in the results. We are always very proud of our students and staff and we will continue to support them in their curricular and extra curricular activities.”
The students from the Scioto County Career Technical Center BPA chapter attending the conference are Halli Kellemeyer, health administration; Hannah Cook, basic office systems and procedures; Allison Allard, ICD-10-CM coding; Nevaeh Crawford, basic office systems and procedures.
“I am very proud of the hard work and dedication these students have put into their Medical Office Management Program and Business Professionals of America organization while attending SCCTC. The opportunities that BPA has provided for these students is endless.” Said Tracy Stewart, Medical Office Management instructor and BPA local Chapter advisor.
