DECA success again!

OUR DECA TEAM had great success at the State Conference in Hershey last week.  We entered 40 students into various events and they competed with 1600 students from across the state.  We came home displaying more than 20 medals, 2 trophies and a team of 3 seniors who qualified for the National Conference in Salt Lake City!  

Please join us in congratulating our trophy winners:
Michael Walsh, Michael Tuller and Mehul Patel – 2nd place in the Sports & Entertainment Operations Research Event.  This team event, which was completed as their graduation project, consisted of a 30 page research paper and a presentation made to judges.   

Jonathan Santos – 5th place in the Male Modeling Event.  Jonathan modeled a business suit and a prom tuxedo and impressed the judges and the young ladies in the audience!

Marissa Williams deserves special praise.  As a first year Accounting student, she faced a difficult challenge as she competed in the Accounting Applications Event against many students from other schools who are in Accounting 2 or 3.  The first place winner scored 83 on the 100-question written test, the 2nd place winner scored 71, and our Marissa scored 70! 

The following students won medals based on a high score on a 100-question test and/or a high score on one or two role plays performed in front of judges for their individual or team events:

Devin Alford, Arcardio Rodriguez, Githin Joy, Mousa Eiyadeh, Jeremy Estes, Eric Smith, John Murray, Ben Moshnyager, AJ Sahlanis, Rochell Henry, Marissa Williams, Mathews Jacob, Michael Honick, Jeneel Patel, Geoffrey Smith, Tom Coulson, Parth Patel, Anand Mandlia, Preston Johns, Sandybel Cedeno and Tapan Patel.

Nationals in Salt Lake City, Utah, here we come!
