DECA Team Members Head to Nationals

Two members of the high school’s DECA team will be heading to the National DECA competition in Nashville after qualifying at the New York State DECA competition.

To gain entry into the national competition, Robert Torres proved his business skills at the state level by earning second place in the business finance category. Teammate Melissa Manzello procured her national placement after winning third place in the apparel and accessories marketing bracket.   

At the same competition, DECA team members Chris Alese, Erin Choinski, Lindsey Deegan, Chris Kuhnle, Haley Lindel, Ryan Letcher, Michael Rask and Ryan Zukowski also earned trophies in various events.

The team’s recent wins continue their winning streak this school year.  At the regional DECA competition in March the team earned 14 trophies and three honorable mentions.  

The school district extends its congratulations to the entire DECA team and national competitors Robert Torres and Melissa Manzello.
