National Business Qualifiers

Five students in the Business Professionals of America program at Stratford High School were named winners at the recent state competition and qualified for Nationals, which was held in Orlando, Fla. Named state winners and Nationals qualifiers are Stratford High students Sara Boyle, Katherine Kennedy, Scott Kennedy, Abby McMurty and Rosie Wu.

These students competed in 10 separate areas. They include: global marketing; payroll accounting; project management concepts; business meeting management; insurance concepts; global marketing; management; marketing and human resources; interview skills; and advanced accounting.

In all, the five Stratford High students won 10 medals, and the brother-sister team of Katherine and Scott Kennedy won seven of those medals.

Due to their finals schedules, this year's qualifiers were not able to attend the national convention. The Business Professionals of America program at Stratford High School is co-directed by Mary Jackson and Kristy Schaper.

The program is supported by the career and technology education program based at the district’s Guthrie Center.
