At the beginning of January, seven Wheatley students qualified to participate in the New York State DECA Finals this past week. Held in Rochester, New York, our students competed from Wednesday through Friday, accompanied by DECA Advisor, Kristen Malik.
Wheatley students did very well at the conference!
Three of our students placed in the Top 10 overall:
- Manan Shukla (Class of 2019) placed in the top 10 for both his role plays and overall
- Andrew Hirsch (Class of 2019) placed in the top 10 for his role play and his written exam
- Tony Deluxe (Class of 2019) placed in top 10 for the exam and his role plays
Tony also placed 5th overall in the State Competition, qualifying him for the International Competition in Anaheim, California!
Congratulations to all of our competitors, and thank you to Mrs. Malik for leading the students through this great experience!
