So Proud

In February, our son participated in the local DECA competition.  DECA (formerly known as Delta Epsilon Chi) is the International Association of Marketing Students, and prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.

He and his teammate participated in the "Financial Services Team Decision Making Event" and came away with a 1st Place trophy, qualifying them to participate in State Competition in March.


Last weekend our son, four classmates and their teacher traveled to Columbus, Ohio for "States."  He and his teammate made it into the top ten for the first round of "financial services" competition, which earned them a spot in the second round.  Unfortunately, they didn't "place" in the second round -- but he came home with this "Top Ten" medal.

We are so proud of our son and his endeavor.
