West Las Vegas Middle School Business Professionals of America students have made their mark on the national scene the last several years and have again been recognized by receiving the 2008 Quality Chapter Distinction.
In a letter to the West BPA chapter, Kirk Lawson, BPA executive director, wrote, “Members attending the national leadership conference in Reno, Nevada, will be recognized as Quality Chapter members.”
BPA sponsor Brian Gurul said his students had to meet a myriad of objectives to qualify for the honor.
“This is a huge accomplishment; this is the second highest award a BPA chapter can receive. This distinction says we’re doing a good job here at West Las Vegas Middle School, and we should be very proud,” Gurul said.
Principal Josephine Romero said the respect, responsibility and work ethic displayed by BPA students
“I just got here last year, and I’ve just been blown away by what they’ve done. They work so hard, and they keep on making me prouder and prouder, It’s just an honor to work with them and Mr. Gurul,” Romero said.
Gurul said 24 BPA members are working every day after school to prepare for the National Leadership Conference next month.
