This past week, 18 Shorecrest and Shorewood High School DECA students were among over 19,000 students from around the world to participate in the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Anaheim, CA.

The conference featured the top DECA students from each state and international chapter. To qualify to attend the ICDC, the 18 Shoreline students first had to earn high placing at the state competition, which occurred in early March.

Facing off against the world’s best, the Shoreline students rose to the occasion and proved they were there for a reason. In addition to strong showings from all of the Shoreline students who competed, four Shorewood students were among the Top 10 Overall Finalists and another three were selected as Sub-Category Finalists for their projects.

Gabby Easthouse, Violet Schermer and Rachel Neroutsos were also recognized as sub-category finalists for having one of the top presentation scores in the preliminary rounds of the merchandising promotion plan competition.

It wasn’t all competitions and awards though; the students also attended learning sessions and heard presentations from some of the world’s top business leaders.

That is awesome! In my High School days, I too was a finalist at the National DECA conference. I am glad this program is still going strong. I know it was a huge help to me, and helped to shape me into the person I am today.
