The 26 Bellefontaine High School DECA students recently traveled to Ohio Northern University to compete against 11 other districts in various events including parliamentary law, public relations, case studies, job interview and marketing tests at the Ohio DECA District 3 Fall Leadership Conference.
Out of those 26 BHS students, 11 pulled away with DECA Diamonds. Two team management squads came out with first place diamonds; the team of Jacob Miller and Anthony Carothers in the silver category and Riley Penhorwood and Kassidi Sullivan in the blue category. Also among recipients of DECA diamonds was Chace Robinson receiving second place in Series Blue. Liz Martin and Jenna Fannin placed third in Job Interview and Parliamentary Law. Other victories included fourth-place diamonds for Jenna Champion in Series Gold and Chase Miller in Public Relations. Finishing in fifth place was Peyton Robbins and Boris Pattison in Public Relations and Parliamentary Law.
BHS DECA is in action Wednesday, Nov. 18, for the Ohio DECA Fall Leadership Conference at the Columbus Convention Center. (PHOTOS SUBMITTED)
