The following students attended the International Career Development Conference in Atlanta, GA: Connor Kerns, Ellie Kerns, Justiss Cantu, Haley Whitesel, Reagan Hoggatt and Sophia Spence. Miss Kuehl and the students left after Prom around 11:30 p.m. and arrived in Atlanta around 9:15 Sunday morning. The students had to go right to their sessions.
Connor and Ellie competed in Sports and Entertainment Marketing. They have competed together since their sophomore year. As juniors, they placed 6th in the state. As seniors, they placed 2nd in the state and qualified to compete at the International Career Development Conference.
Justiss Cantu and Haley Whitesel represented the TeePee in School-Based Enterprise Food Service. They received an Award of Excellence. That means they scored above an 80% on their presentation.
Reagan Hoggatt and Sophia Spence represented Apache Design in School-Based Enterprise Retail Operations. They also attended the Empower Academy for State Officer Training. These ladies will be DECA State Officers next year.
The students were also able to tour the World of Coke and ride the Ferris Wheel in Centennial Park. They wanted to tour CNN but the tours were sold out for the day that they had time.
Miss Kuehl would like to thank everyone for their continued support of Union City DECA.
