DECA DECA · Northmont DECA Members Place Top Ten at Ohio DECA Fall Leadership Conference


Northmont DECA members Senior Isaiah Underwood and Senior Chasity Knight competed at the Ohio DECA Fall Leadership conference in Columbus, Ohio today. Chasity and Isaiah competed in the Public Relations event, which consisted of a DECA Facts test, a one-minute self-introduction, and an interview.  Both students were able to make finals and place Top Ten in Ohio.  To be able to compete at the state conference both had to qualify from the district competition.  This is back-to-back years placing Top Ten in this event for Chasity.

This is a tremendous accomplishment for these two individuals. It takes a lot of work and effort to be able to not only get to the state conference but to then place in the Top Ten is an amazing accomplishment. I am hoping that the turnout at the Fall Conference will carry over for the rest of the chapter and we can continue the success into the remainder of the school year.  Eric Wagner – DECA Advisor
