Woodstock HS DECA Students Advance to International Competition

Two Woodstock High School students competed in the DECA State Career Development Conference in Atlanta, and one has qualified to attend the marketing student associations international competition.

Juniors Tom Lawrence and Evan Conley participated in the three-day event. Lawrence placed first in the Principles of Finance event and is headed to the international contest this month in Orlando. Students advance to internationals through high scores on a test taken in advance of the event and/or by succeeding in role-playing scenarios at the competition that test their marketing knowledge and abilities to develop and present solutions.

Lawrence is a Superintendents Key Scholar, Eagle Scout, member of the Beta Club and Latin National Honor Society, and runner on the cross country and track teams.

The Woodstock HS DECA club, in addition to providing students with opportunities to learn about careers in marketing, organizes community service projects including two blood drives each year. Marketing teacher Melanie Salas is the clubs sponsor.
