Shoreham-Wading River High School was well represented at DECA’s 63rd Annual New York State Career Conference recently held in Rochester, New York. Twenty-eight students competed in events in business, finance, entrepreneurship and marketing. Students were required to take exams, prepare presentations in entrepreneurship and professional selling and role play various business situations.

Six students – Ayman Ali, Ryan Cummings, Olivia Diamond, Jacob Formisano, Liam McGuire and Christopher Vignola – were recognized in the DECA National Honor Society, and 12 students received medals for placing top 10 in one or more of their events, with three students placing top 10 overall. National Event winners included Ayman Ali and Sean Dany, who placed second in the state for Financial Services Team Decision Making, and Jacob Formisano, Christopher Vignola and Bryan Vogel, who qualified as Leadership Academy candidates. Five students will move on to represent Shoreham-Wading River at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Congratulations to all the students and adviser Melissa Cosgrove on these exciting achievements!
