“Students from the Texas Association’s Regional Leadership Conference have qualified to participate at the state level conference. The conference emphasizes business workforce education and training which members of the local chapter of Business Professionals of America at Carroll have received,” said Carroll ISD chapter advisor Kim Goodman.  In addition to the qualifying events, members have also been working together to compete the BPA Torch Awards Program.  This program is designed to promote professionalism, leadership and personal growth in seven different categories.  “Last year, and again this year, our members have successfully complete the tasks to meet the requirement for the Statesman award at State Leadership Conference.  I am very proud of their commitment and accomplishments in our second year as a BPA chapter.”
