State Officer Team

2020-2021 Massachusetts State Officer Program of Work

The purpose of the 2020-2021 Massachusetts Program of Work is to outline the ambitious goals and initiatives the State Officer Team wishes to take for the 2020-2021 membership year.

In order to enhance the membership’s experience, improve member participation, and increase the social media presence of Massachusetts Business Professionals of America, the State Officer Team has come up with various comprehensive steps to achieve these goals.

Meet your 2020-2021 State Officer Team!

Ellianna Christopher - Secondary President -

My name is Ellianna Christopher and I am honored to serve as your 2020-2021 Secondary President. I am a senior at Taconic High school, studying classes in the business field, and plan on continuing that education throughout college. I was determined to be a state officer for my second year, because of my amazing opportunities and experiences serving as State Treasurer last year. In addition to those experiences, my growing passion for business has pushed me to serve in the organization and do as much as I possibly can for Massachusetts BPA. I would love to help everyone make the most out of their time in BPA and provide support and advice to anyone in need of it. Personally, I didn’t realize all of the amazing things that come out of BPA and I hope I get a chance to let everyone know what BPA has to offer!

Bryan Teves - Secondary Vice President -

My name is Bryan Teves and I am very proud to be serving as your 2020-2021 Secondary Vice-President. I am a senior at Greater New Bedford Voc-Tech High School, studying in Information Support Services and Networking in New Bedford, MA. I have been a part of BPA since 2018, and ever since then I have fell in love with this organization. Outside of BPA, my hobbies include playing video games, working on computers, and spending time with my family and friends. My primary goal for MA BPA is to make this organization accessible for anyone that is wanting to find a program that fits with them. Being a State Officer will come with its challenges ahead, but I, and the rest of the State Officer Team will be ready for any challenge and will make MA BPA a truly amazing experience.

Shreya Thalvayapati - Secondary Secretary -

My name is Shreya Thalvayapati and I am incredibly excited to serve as your 2020-2021 Secondary Secretary. I am a rising senior at Hopkinton High School and BPA has undoubtedly been the highlight of my high school career. Outside of school and BPA, I am a competitive debater, a student contributor at Fastweb, and a fellow on some local campaigns. I also love spending time with friends and family and writing about current events and the complexities within our society. As a state officer, my goal is to help members get as much out of BPA as they can and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to do so!

Andre Ragel - Post-Secondary President -

My name is Andre Ragel and I am excited and honored to serve as your Post-Secondary State President. I am currently a senior at UMass Lowell studying Management with a concentration in Marketing. My journey with MA BPA started my sophomore year at Lowell High School during the 2014 Fall Leadership Conference, when I felt that BPA was the perfect club for me to get involved in. Outside of BPA, I love to travel the world, eat delicious food and swim. As your State Officer, I am committed to creating new programs that will enhance our whole membership's experience and maybe even convince you to continue Envision, Empower and Ignite in college by joining our rapidly growing Post-secondary Chapter!
