2024-2025 State Officer Leadership Team Candidates

Brooklyn Busby, Shenandoah High School

Hi, I’m Brooklyn Busby and I’m currently a sophomore at Shenandoah High School. This membership year, I assisted in the revival of my high school BPA chapter and was approved for my Ambassador Torch Award. If I am elected, I want to help members discover their potential in different ways. For example, engaging in the BPA Torch and BPA Cares programs as well as connecting with their community. In my daily life, I am a leader in tennis and a section leader in two bands. Let's make this year remarkable. Thank you.

Ryan Kelley, Frontier Jr./Sr. High School

I am Ryan Kelley, a student at Frontier High School. I am enthusiastic about BPA and have a strong track record of leadership, serving as treasurer for both my BPA and NHS chapters, leading the yearbook staff, and assisting with the school's Cross Country team. I previously held the role of Secretary in BPA and found it very rewarding. I am eager to continue my involvement in BPA by running for office. I believe my dedication, leadership skills, and willingness to help others makes me a strong candidate. My experiences have prepared me for the trials and tribulations that await.

Mahindra Mandala, Center Grove High School

BPA transformed me. Initially filled with nervousness and uncertainty, I have transformed into a leader driven by a passion for communication and innovation. This journey wasn't merely about skill development; it was about discovering my voice and unlocking confidence that allowed me to achieve the unimaginable. Serving as Vice President wasn't just a role but a chance to lead my chapter to new heights. Now, I'm eager to elevate this commitment to the state level. BPA instilled in me the belief in the impossible, and I'm asking you to believe in me.

Ana Slattery, Plymouth High School

Are you rooting for Ana Slattery to secure her spot on the state officer leadership team for a second year? As a junior, this marks my last chance to contribute to BPA at the high school level. Serving on the SOLT this year has been an incredible journey, working tirelessly with the current team to achieve our goals. I've gained invaluable insights into true leadership and understand the dedication required for this role. Go bananas for Ana & vote her for IndiANA!

I am running for the position of Vice-President-Administration of Business Professionals of America (BPA) because I see this as an opportunity to lead, inspire, and make a positive impact on this organization and its members. As a candidate, I believe I am the perfect person for the position. Being an effective communicator is an important aspect of leadership and I am excellent in that arena. I am approachable, accessible, and will listen to all concerns, ideas, and suggestions. With a clear vision for the future, I want a chance to continue the BPA legacy of community service and meaningful change.
