DECA Brings Back Success
By Steve Bartholomew
South Huntington School District is very proud of our 15 DECA students who competed in the New York State Annual DECA Career Conference in Rochester on Saturday, March 9, 2013. The Whitman students joined 1,777 students from around the state to compete for top scores on tests and in role-play events that help prepare these emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management.
Club co-advisor Deanna L. Kluepfel is happy to report that her students were not only well prepared, but were also very successful in each of their competitive events. The following students placed in the top ten in the state and were awarded medals in their events:
Robert Galvin in Accounting Applications
Zarmeen Mussa in Apparel and Accessories
Derek Zadrozny in Hotel and Lodging Management
Jackie Calamari and Jordana Lanz in Community Service Project Written Report
First year member, Catherine Aiello, earned a 2nd Place trophy in Principles of Marketing, and qualifies to compete at the International Career Development Conference in Anaheim, California this April.
Congratulations to all of our talented DECA students!
