MATC Students Excel at BPA National Leadership Conference

Six students enrolled in Mr. Walls’ Multimedia Specialist program brought home 18 medals in six different events and claimed the Fifth ‘World Championship’ for the Multimedia class, at the Business Professionals of America 2023 National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California.

This year marked the largest BPA conference with 6500 members in attendance. Oklahoma was well represented with 500 students attending. Oklahoma also received the Postsecondary Professional Cup. This award is given to the highest performing association in this division which includes chapters in technology centers, community and technical colleges, and universities.

The level of competition was extremely high this year, and we would like to congratulate these students on their accomplishments.
