Among them were two students from the Bay College / LSSU Regional Center BPA student club who medaled in their respective events.

Griffin Johnson, BPA Club President, took first place in Ethics & Professionalism, second place in Prepared Speech, and third place in Contemporary Issues. Tregan Lippens, BPA Vice President, captured second place in Ethics & Professionalism and fourth place in Contemporary Issues.
