From March 6-8, the MHS DECA Chapter attended the New York DECA State Career Conference in Rochester, NY. Sixteen of our learners participated in competitive role-play events, focusing on different career clusters such as Human Resource Management and Business Financial Services. There were over 2,000 attendees at this respected event.

On the first night of the conference, seniors Eunice Lee and Arnav Shah were invited to the stage to accept an award for the creation of the first DECA Chapter at Mineola High School, which was officially formed at the start of this school year.

Following the series of rigorous competitions and simulations, the Mineola team was invited back to the stage to collect a total of seven medals, an outstanding result of their overall professionalism, tenacity and skill in the DECA arena.

Eunice Lee received three Top 10 medals for exceptional performance in the Human Resources Management events. Arnav Shah received a medal for Top 10 placement in the Business Management exam. Junior Jordan Chaver received medals for Top 10 placement in Business Services Marketing exam and the role-play event. Senior Luigi Sartori received a medal for Top 10 placement in the Business Administration Core exam.

"We're tremendously #MineolaProud of our learners' accomplishments at this year's State Career Conference,” said DECA Chapter Advisor Mr. McShane. “The success our chapter has seen at both the Regional and State level in its inaugural year is a testament to how motivated and determined our learners are."
