Sixteen Tappan Zee High School DECA members competed in the New York State DECA Career Conference in Rochester last week. For the fifth consecutive year, the chapter was awarded as the top contributor to the annual DECA State fundraiser. Funds raised this year will support Alzheimer’s research. In addition, the following members placed among the top 10 finalists for their categories:

  • Aidan Donohue, Food Marketing
  • Justin Lee and Jacob Greenberg, Innovation Plan
  • Alex Gottlieb, Independent Business Plan
  • Aswathi Nair and Kavitha Sriskanda, International Business Plan

DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. “DECA is a high school and collegiate student organization that prepares the next generation to be experienced, professionally responsible, academically prepared, and community-oriented leaders,” says TZHS DECA advisor Mark Bergling.

Congratulations to TZHS DECA on a great showing at States!
