It will be a record-breaking contingent of Wildcats heading to the state DECA (decka) competition next month, after district business education activities at BGSU recently. Over 400 students from 11 different schools were part of the event; and Napoleon is sending two-dozen of their best to Columbus.
DECA advisor Jason Zera reports Napoleon had six district champions. They include Jon Smith in Food Marketing, Caitlyne Spencer in Marketing Management, Meghan Straight in Principles of Hospitality and Tourism. Also heading to state as a district champ are John Steele in Apparel Marketing, Ryan Parker for Sports and Entertainment, along with Andrew Bischoff in Restaurant and Food Management.
Napoleon’s 24 students will compete at state on March 14th and 15th, with the chance to advance to the nationals in Atlanta, Georgia.
