DECA Students Travel Downstate


Michigan Tech’s Collegiate DECA members attended the DECA State Career Development Conference earlier this month. In addition to networking with thousands of DECA members from Michigan, members were afforded the opportunity to take knowledge developed inside the classroom and transform it into solutions to real world problem. Of the students who attended, 75% of them qualified for the National Conference to be held in Orlando, FL at the end of April. One of the students, Jeffery Hines, even placed 2nd overall in his event. Other awards were handed out to the National Conference nominees, proving not only their ability to be hands on with problems, but the ability to solve them in a timely, and professional manner.
