Congratulations to all ten CHS students who competed nationally this weekend at the nation’s capitol.

Sophomore Sai Panguluri received first place honors at nationals, beating forty other students from across the nation at Human Resources Management.

Mitu Bhattatiry advanced to the preliminary rounds in her category of Economic Research and received recognition as being top ten in the nation of BPA.

15-year long sponsor Jan McClintock was recognized at nationals for her long consecutive years of sponsoring BPA; Cindy Wolfe has been assisting and sponsoring the club for the past six years.

For the first year, middle school students, from Coppell Middle School East (CMSE) -sponsored by Chris Gollner- attended the national competition. A group of three, the web design team, experienced Washington D.C. and won first place in the middle school category.

Beside BPA official work, the competitors enjoyed special luxuries, like an exclusive tour of the Capitol building, tour of Monuments by Moonlight seeing the Washington and Lincoln memorials at nighttime as well as the White House.
