Saline High School students traveled to downtown Detroit, March 9-11, for the DECA State Career Development Conference. There were 42 students from Saline competing alongside 3,600 other students from Michigan. Many students competed in a business role play, while others prepared a written paper and presented it during the competition.
The following individuals or teams received finalist medals: Grace Livsey, Ryan Koch, Tim Wageman, Aidan Keyes (SWWC), Gita Deshpande/Courtney Zmich, Molly Finnegan/Lauryn Kruse and Edward Pfannes earned a medal for his high competency test score.
Individuals Megan Foley and Matt Thibeault, along with the team of Annie Nelson, Matt Filsinger and SWWC student Aidan Keyes, were awarded first place champion plaques and will be traveling to Atlanta, GA in April to compete at Internationals.
"The recognition that these students earned is no small feat and they truly deserve to be congratulated," DECA instructor Kara Stemmer said.
