Mahdi, Steven and Riya Earn First Place Finish in New York State DECA Competition!

Earlier this year, eight Wheatley students qualified to compete in the DECA State Competition, held in Rochester, NY. This year, New York State qualifiers competed virtually against other DECA students from across the state. When the awards were announced last week, our Wheatley DECA Students earned lots of accolades!

Three of our DECA students earned first place finishes in their category!

  • In the Marketing Communications category, Junior Riya Mittle came in first place for the second year in a row!
  • In the Financial Services team event, Juniors Mahdi Bhalloo and Steven Jarrahy came in first place.
  • In the Apparel and Accessories Marketing event, Junior Tyler Richman came in third place!
  • Finally, in the Accounting Applications Exam and the Accounting Applications Roleplay, Junior Michael Wang placed in the Top Ten. In the Travel and Tourism team event, Juniors Michael Emouna and Sasha Rosenzweig worked together in the and placed in the top 10. 

We are so proud of our DECA students who qualified and competed at the State level! Riya, Mahdi, Steven and Tyler will be moving on to the National Competition in Georgia this April!

Thank you to our DECA Advisor, Mrs. Kristen Malik for her guidance and support of these students!
