Bradshaw students compete at DECA
Eight learn about career development
This is Bradshaw Mountain High School's third straight International DECA competition and its second award of excellence. Eight students attended the DECA International Competition Career Development Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, in March where they competed in the organization's marketing, hospitality, finance and management competitions along with 17,000 other students from all 50 states and around the world.
Bradshaw junior Evan Wood competed in the Business Service Marketing role play event. Darcie Hill and Alondra Castillo took on the Public Relation Project event. Hunter Powell, Josh Lewis and Hayley Ehresman competed in the Sport and Entertainment Operation Plan. Meghan Belsito and Athena Bowman entered the Entrepreneurship Written Event.
Hill and Castillo earned the Award of Excellence certificate for their public relation project. This means that they met the 70 percent or above standard grade set by National DECA for all contestants.
"I am very proud of our chapter and what they were able to accomplish this year," said DECA advisor Mark Campbell.
