West Side High School’s Business Professionals of America team had its state competition recently and under business teacher Vance Reeder’s direction, eight students will be representing the Pirates at the national conference in Indianapolis next month.
At the state competition Taya Nash and Whitnee Smart were honored for earning Torch awards. In order to earn this, students have to complete various activities in seven categories: leadership, service, cooperation, knowledge, friendship, love, hope, faith and patriotism.
“Torch awards aren’t big awards that you go to BPA for, but it is one that looks good on resumes and for college applications,” said Smart. “I’m glad I was able to get it.”
In addition to these awards, West Side’s parliamentary procedure team placed first at the state competition. The team consists of Brennon Henderson, AJ Frankman, Tyrel Garner, Hayes Campbell, Whitney Drollette, Derek Larson, Lane Meek and Jarren Miller. Whitney Drollette also took third in C++ programing.
