The swine flu virus has come down on some local students' plans.

A number of area students planned to attend the Business Professionals of America 2009 National Leadership Conference May 6-10 in Dallas, but were disappointed Friday by the cancellation of the event.

In a letter sent to attendees, National BPA leaders said they made the decision after consulting with national, state and local health departments about the risks of thousands of people gathering for a conference during the swine flu outbreak.
