Recognition of the 2019 DECA International Career Development Conference student participants took place at the June 10 DeForest Area School Board meeting. Students (from left to right in the photo): Beau Blackdeer, Audrey Williams, Mason Hoffman and Gift Chujor (missing was Cole Bayer, who couldn’t attend). The DASD chapter saw unprecedented success, with five national award winners. Blackdeer medaled in a Retail Merchandising series case study, and Bayer (Sports and Entertainment Marketing), Chujor and Hoffman (Entrepreneurship Team Decision Making) all advanced to the secondary round of competition as finalists (top 20 in their respective series). Audrey Williams won first place in her Apparel and Accessories Marketing Event, having not only beaten out her fellow international qualifiers, but an estimated 10,000 students who competed in the same event over the course of various district and state conferences. The first place finish at ICDC was a first for the DeForest Area High School DECA chapter.
