• group ML BPA CELEBRATES 5 YEARS

    On Friday, February 21, 2020, twenty-three students, two advisors, one high school intern, and four parents traveled to Davenport University for the 5th Annual Middle Level Business Professionals of America State Leadership Conference. Thirteen students qualified for the National Leadership Conference to be held in Washington D.C. in May. 

    Kate Nolan ‘25, Kennadi Smith ‘27, Karsyn Stebbins ‘24, and Madelyn Wilson ‘27 were crowned state champions in Introduction to Video Production Team.  The girls created a two minute video about the importance of volunteering.

    There were several second place finishes including:  Stephen Petersen ‘24 in Graphic Design, the team of Amelia Dietz ‘24, Annzley Francis ‘24, and Ava Ruley ‘25 in Administrative Support Team, and Grant Good ‘25, Kassidy Hassenzahl ‘25, and Quinn Ortiz ‘25 in Website Design Team. Stephen created a slogan, logan and flyer advertising the 2021 conference in Florida.  Ava, Amelia, and Annzley had to team up to complete and integrate projects using Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Grant, Kassidy, and Quinn created a really cool website about the top ten places to visit in Michigan.

    Seventh grader Abrahm (Brahm) Gambill placed third in Extemporaneous Speech. Also taking home third place honors were: Abigail Nolan ‘25 in Financial Literacy, Karsyn Stebbins ‘24 in Graphic Design, and Kate Nolan ‘25 in Prepared Speech. Twenty-two middle schoolers had top ten finishes even though they did not qualify for the National Leadership Conference.

    winners Advisors Laura Wilson and Mindy Eggleston were presented with five year awards and Amelia Dietz, Landon Dunning, Annemarie Moore, and Stephen Petersen were recognized for creating the 2020 State Theme.  The group came up with a slogan and design called “Break Through”. The design was used on all state correspondence, awards, and even on the state trading pin.
