Kolbe Eoff was also selected as a National Candidate for Texas and will compete in Orlando with the aid of his campaign manager, Santiago Uribe.  His campaign “Klimb With Kolbe” is based on the idea of climbing to success. He and his campaign manager are the only two traveling to Orlando to attend the BPA National Leadership Conference in May.


I chose to run because of my love for BPA,” said Eoff. “I hope to learn a great deal of leadership, confidence, and communication. Three things I believe you can always improve upon.”


The BPA sponsor for NBHS is Beverly Trollinger.
