EVESHAM – Cherokee High School’s DECA Chapter recently participated at the New Jersey DECA High School State Career Development Conference in Atlantic City.
To earn a spot at the national level, 36 students from Cherokee competed in two role-play events, presented integrated marketing campaigns and completed a 100-question test. On March 1, New Jersey DECA announced the state winners. Cherokee’s Emma Parkinson, Olivia Parkinson, Ishan Prabhakar and Bryant Chok have qualified for the nationals and will represent New Jersey by competing at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Fla. in April.
“I am proud of how much the teams dedicated their own time to prepare for each round in Atlantic City. Each student is well-prepared and eager to continue to the highest level of competition. Not only is the conference a competition but also an extraordinary opportunity for networking, hands-on learning, and social-emotional learning. Our students gained a new perspective and a better sense of their capabilities,” said Cherokee DECA advisor and business teacher Jennifer Herpen.
DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
