BHS DECA advances to state competition
The Baldwyn High School DECA club continues in its tradition of excellence. This month eight BHS students qualified to advance to the state DECA competition.
All students who participated in the 2018 District III DECA Conference on January 10 placed including Hannah Anglin, first place in Apparel and Accessories Marketing; Garrett Gray and Connor Hendrix, fourth place in Sports and Entertainment Marketing; Corey Large and Ryder Osmundson, second place in Business Law and Ethics; Destiny Nowell, second place in Quick Serve Restaurant Management; Westin Phillips, second place in Restaurant and Food Service Management; and Josh Reynolds, third place in Business Finance.
Each of the students had to complete a computerized test of their subject area prior to the conference. At the competition students engaged in timed role playing presentations to judges in their particular subject area.
“We are very proud of our DECA students and their dedication to studying and performing well each year,” Joe Blassingame, DECA sponsor said.
These students will complete at the 2018 DECA State Conference in February in Jackson.
“We are always proud of the rich tradition that our DECA students demonstrate each year. They represent our school well, and we know they will carry on the successful tradition,” Superintendent Jason McKay noted.
