DECA Team Excels at District Competition

The Providence Cristo Rey High School DECA club had an excellent competition performance at the 2018 DECA District 8 Career Development Conference.

DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe. Providence Cristo Rey's DECA club is in its fourth year.

DECA members choose a concentration area and are judged on an exam and their performance during role-play scenarios. There are usually 12 to 18 students competing in each area during district competitions.

This year, Providence Cristo Rey sent seven students to the district competition. Three students placed first in their event areas: Yoselin Martinez for Marketing Communication, Omar Ramirez for Food Service Management, and A'Jewelle Johnson for Apparel and Accessories Marketing. All three will be moving on to the state competition in March.
