MATC Business Professionals of America Students Earn National Awards

         The MATC students enrolled in Mr. Wall’s Multimedia Specialist class walked away with ‘Five’ national awards from the BPA National Leadership Conference. This was a monumental achievement for these students considering this was the second-largest conference in BPA’s 55-year history that saw attendees from not only the United States but also Canada, Peru, and northern China.

           Please join us in congratulating these incredibly talented students!

  • Brighton Snow: 1st, Social Media Marketing Challenge & 7th, Entrepreneurship (Oklahoma’s only finalist)
  • Lydia Bell: 1st, Promotional Photography
  • Mario Gaitan: 3rd, Digital Media Production & 7th, Advanced Interview (postsecondary)

This year’s BPA National Conference consisted of two major firsts; the first ‘virtual’ national conference and also lead the way when the voting delegates, including Snow, participated in electing the first-ever National Officer from outside of the US. Grace Tang from SKT Education China will be serving on the National BPA Officer Team with other students from around the nation.

MATC would also like to thank two of Mr. Wall’s Advisory Committee members, Sarah Williams and Royce Liston, for providing invaluable assistance by practicing with the students to hone their interview and presentation skills. Each student had an interview and presentation component to their contest, and this assistance allowed them to fine-tune their entries and gave them the confidence to sell their work and get “on stage” at the highest level.

BPA is the co-curricular Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for students pursuing careers in business management, information technology, finance, office administration, health administration, and other related career fields.
