Victoria Pinaretta- President
My name is Victoria Pinarreta and I am privileged to serve as your 2018-2019 Massachusetts BPA President. I attend Bristol-Plymouth Vocational Technical School, specializing in the field of Dental Assisting. Aside from BPA, I am also apart of NHS, NTHS, DECA, HOSA, and our Community Service Club. Outside of school, I am an active member of my community, participating in our local food pantry and soup kitchens as well as co-leading a Girl Scout troop. Some of my other hobbies include traveling, hiking, and constant online shopping. Through this upcoming year serving as your MA BPA president, I hope to learn and grow with the members, in addition to obtaining the skills and tools to become an aspiring leader.
Kiaarah Cortijo- Vice President
My name is Kiaarah Cortijo; it is an honor to serve as your 2018-2019 Massachusetts BPA Vice President. I am a junior in Business Technology at Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech High School in New Bedford, Massachusetts. I have been a BPA member since my sophomore year of high school and would love to continue my journey on with the Post-Secondary division once I graduate. Outside of school, I dedicate my time to working at an Insurance Agency and attending church. My hobbies consist of: traveling, beach volleyball, and going to the gym. My goal as your Massachusetts Vice President is to improve the communications between chapters in our state. Throughout this experience in becoming a state officer I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, now let me help you all do the same.

Hi BPA, my name is John Quintin. I study Information Technology at Joseph P. Keefe Technical School. A fun fact: I work at my high school for Keefe at Night. I have many titles there: AV technician, designer, office assistant, etc. I don’t play any sports but I am a big fan of football. I also have a huge passion for Jeeps. Another thing about me is that I enjoy talking, Looking forward to be your 2018-2019 State Officer!
Jayden Cross- Treasurer
Hello my name is Jayden Michael Cross. I am a 16 year old Junior at Taconic High School in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I am a part of the business field at Taconic and I am going to be a student ambassador next year. I have been apart of BPA since my sophomore year and am the Vice President of Taconic's Chapter. I am really honored to have been elected as your State Treasurer. After High School I plan on attending a 4 year university to further my business knowledge and hopefully become a stockbroker. Since the young age of 4 I have been playing soccer, baseball, and basketball and those sports gave me courage, strength, and Leadership Skills. I would be really lost without my BPA family.
