Rich South student Mandell Taylor will attend the Business Professionals of America Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla.

The Workplace Skills Assessment Program prepares students to succeed, and it assesses real-world business skills and problem-solving abilities in finance, management, IT and computer applications. It is BPA’s showcase program and facilitates students demonstrating their career skills at regional, state and national conferences in 72 competitive events.

Taylor qualified to compete at the national conference in two categories: PC Servicing & Troubleshooting, and Information Technology Concepts.

While there, he will have the opportunity to participate in educational workshops, hear prominent speakers, elect student officers, make policy recommendations, conduct the business of the organization, and take part in leadership programs.
