DECA members shine

Twenty-one DECA members competed in a Career Development Conference in Orlando. Ryan Chin-Hing and Nicole Tan placed fourth in the state in the Quiz Bowl event and Nicole Badami and Shelton Tolbert placed first in the Buying and Merchandising Team Event.

These top scorers are eligible to compete at the next level, the International Career Development Conference in Louisville, Ky, April 24-27.

The Central DECA was once again recognized as a Gold Level Chapter, which means it is a top chapter in the state. This is the fifth consecutive time the chapter has achieved this distinction.

Michelle Venezia, who served as a state DECA vice president this year, received the Ed Fleming Memorial Scholarship, among many other awards. She is now campaigning for the national DECA presidency. The National DECA (Delta Epsilon Chi) is a 185,000-member student marketing organization.
