Competing against 17,000 of the nation’s most outstanding marketing students, four GCHS DECA members advanced to the final round of competition in this year’s DECA International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Nashville.

McKenzie Snyder and Mekenzie Ballard competed in Creative Marketing Plan, and Kevin Wilson and Danielle Grapes competed in Financial Literacy Promotion Project.

MDA project leaders Zach Lashley, Noah Cummings, and Hannah Clemons were treated to a VIP luncheon for raising $7,020 for that cause this year, the 8th largest total in the nation among DECA chapters.

DECA Advisor Cynthia Smith attended a VIP luncheon recognizing the GCHS chapter for having the largest membership in the state and having the largest percentage of increase from last year.

National honors are a longstanding tradition for GCHS DECA. The chapter has had students recognized at the national level every year since 2001, the longest record in state DECA history.
