King Philip High School Students Earn National, Statewide DECA Honors
WRENTHAM — King Philip DECA Vice President of Marketing Emma Daly would like to provide an update on the high school’s business club:
One of King Philip DECA’s senior members, Ryan Wood, has been awarded the 2019 DECA Emerging Leader Honor Award, which recognizes students studying marketing, finance, hospitality and management as well as being an academically prepared, community oriented, professionally responsible and experienced leader through participation in DECA.
The award recipients must be DECA members in their senior year of high school with a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher for each high school semester. James K. Dow is the chapter advisor.
DECA prepares students interested in careers in marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, hospitality, and management. With over 200,000 students involved in this influential organization, DECA creates individuals who are goal oriented, hardworking, involved in their community, and professionally responsible. With the skills learned during their involvement in this organization students become ready to perform well in college and in their future careers.
King Philip DECA is also pleased to announce that four of our members have been awarded first place in the Mass DECA video contest, cover design and Celtics pitch. The statewide event is open to over 85 high schools and our chapter was able to win this award for the fifth year in a row.
The video cover design and Celtics pitch are student-designed and are used for the duration of the DECA year, and if chosen as a first-place winner they then are awarded a spot at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Our chapter advisor Mr. James Dow would like to congratulate seniors Kat Caravaggio, Kylie Breen and Bettina Harvey, as well as junior Sami Benredda on winning these statewide events.
Our entire chapter is proud of these students’ accomplishments and our chapter members are ready and beyond excited to compete at the state conference in March.
