Inaugural WJ DECA Chapter Rises to the Challenge

West Johnston has had a successful first year with our new DECA chapter. In March, seven students participated in the State Competition.  The chapter sent two students to the International Competition, which was held in Orlando, Florida April 26 - May 1, 2019.  While at the DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC), where there were over 22,000 competitors from across the world, our 2 DECA members competed in testing and role play events. One of our students, Oscar Liu, received a Silver Medallion in testing for the Principals of Business Management event, meaning that he received one of the highest test scores out of the 400+ competitors in that specific event. Both of our competitors, Tonya DeBlasio and Oscar Liu, received a Platinum Proficiency Award in their events.

Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Fisher are so proud to see our students walk across the DECA stage for the first time this year and are extremely proud of the students and how much work they put into the launching this club.
