This past weekend, Marketing and DECA students traveled to Fort Worth to compete in the state DECA competition. In this competition, each event has over 100 participants and only the first place winner will proceed on to Internationals.

Led by DECA Advisor Brandi LeBlanc, the team had great success at the state competition. In the individual series, Andi Petry will compete in the Quick Serve Restaurant Management event and Sara Millett will in the Apparel & Accessories Marketing event. CHS will be represented in the team decision makings events of Marketing Communications with Kristin Shepard and Caroline Carter while Cody Blake and Garrett Martin will be used as alternates for the Sports & Entertainment Team Decision Making event. The last team event, won by Cydne LeBlanc and Hannah Rucker, is the Business Services Operation Research event.

In April, these students will compete in the International DECA conference in Orlando, FL. This competition has always proved to be extremely competitive the years it has been hosted in Orlando, however, the CHS Marketing and DECA students are ready for the challenge.
