          NHS Hosts Newton Young Professionals

          3/15/2012
          Contributed by Newton High School

          To encourage our chapter members to pursue professionalism and leadership beyond the walls of Newton High School, the NHS BPA chapter invited two guest speakers from Newton Young Professionals to a local chapter meeting.  NYP is a local organization that focusses on the young part of the labor force in Newton. The age requirement for this group is 21-39. Jennifer Mueller and Lindsay Frazier, NYP spokeswomen, told members about what the organization does and how it benefits the community.

          Club members learned about the fun activities NYP participants do together, as well as the opportunities for networking with other business leadership throughout Harvey County. One activity that is popular within NYP is Lunch-N-Learns. These luncheon meetings are designed to promote personal and professional growth on topics relevant to the member’s life and career.  NYP participants get the opportunity to learn from government and community leaders, as well as from fellow young professionals.

          “I asked NYP to come to our BPA meeting so students would learn how to continue being leaders in our community. This gives them another avenue to continue the leadership skills they have been learning in BPA,” said Melinda Rangel, advisor.

          25 members attended the meeting and listened to NYP leaders - 25 x 1 hour = 25
