DECA Students Kick off the Competition Season!

On Friday, 27 October, members of our DECA club participated in a competition at Plainview-Old Bethpage High School. The competition was represented by many public high schools in Nassau County. Students had the opportunity to listen to a keynote address (given by a successful local entrepreneur), participate in leadership activities, and compete against other schools in developing a creative and successful business plan.

Led by DECA Advisor Joseph Virgilio, the following students participated in the competition:

  • Matt Baltzer
  • Jason Bergstein
  • Brett Bloomberg
  • Jona Chorost
  • Tony DeLuxe
  • Evan Gitlitz
  • Zach Jacobs
  • Coby Khami
  • Lex Wain
  • Summer Puricelli
  • Jacob Ribotsky
  • Manan Shukla
  • Caleb Varghese

For their French Cuisine/Soup Kitchen restaurant model, the team consisting of Matt Baltzer, Jason Bergstein and Lex Wain placed 5th out of 27 teams! Congratulations to all of the members!
