Ten students qualified to the state competition for DECA and competed Feb. 21-23 at Dallas and two managed to advance to the International Career Development Conference.
The 10 qualifiers include: Shaylin Ardoin, Karla Chavarria, Nicholas Davis, Jacob Hernandez, Katrina Kelly, Jonathan Leiva, Tori McVey, Jonathan Ponce, Lazaro Villalobos and Lazaro Yanez. Both seniors Ardoin and McVey advanced and will compete in ICDC, which will be held in Orlando, Florida, from April 26-May 1.
Both Ardoin and McVey entered in the sports and entertainment team decision making event category where they both partnered up to compete. Two years ago, they qualified to ICDC and are now setting new expectations to this years’ run.
“My basketball coach (Meine) talked me into joining DECA,” McVey said. “I’m excited about being an international qualifier.”
DECA adviser Bethany Meine said this year has been a little different as they had a lot of new members who competed for the first time.
“For the first time, we had some members choose to compete in purely online events (virtual business simulations) instead of the traditional role play with a judge,” Meine said.
State qualifying members stayed after school, before the state competition, to practice their role play. A few faculty members volunteered to help judge members’ role plays.
Senior Lazaro Villalobos was a state finalist in the automotive services marketing event category, which put him in the top 10.
“(Meine) offers study sessions,” Villalobos said. “She likes to say, ‘give a firm handshake, eye contact and enunciate your words.’”
Senior Nicholas Davis said role playing in front of a judge is the most difficult part of competing.
“Whenever I was role playing with the judge, you have to think on your feet and makeup solutions really fast in your head and maybe sometimes you would stutter,” he said.
