NAPERVILLE, IL, UNITED STATES, November 11, 2017 / -- Last May, Naperville, IL, USA resident Kareena Garg was the first Indian-American female in a decade and youngest student ever to be elected as National Secondary Division President of Business Professionals of America (BPA).

This year, Kareena traveled to the White House for a meeting with U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to discuss BPA, CTSO influence in American Public Education, and her role as National President. “Knowing that I have a positive impact on enhancing the education of thousands of American students is very humbling and motivates me to continue being an active leader with BPA and in my community”, said Kareena Garg.
