East Rockaway Junior-Senior High School’s DECA Club members Anjali Baloy, Edward Gorsky, Marie Lisondra, Katelyn Reddy, Andrew Schwarzman and Peter Wilson competed at state competition in Rochester, New York. 

The students attended business workshops and participated in events, such as financial consulting, personal financial literacy, visual advertising, principles in tourism and hospitality, and job interviews, over a period of three days. Andrew Schwarzman placed fourth in financial consulting and is moving on to nationals in Atlanta in April. Peter Wilson placed in the top 10 on his written exam for personal financial literacy and Katelyn Reddy placed in the top 10 for visual advertising. All of the students competed against the best in the state and did a great job. We are so proud of their success and wish Andrew lots of luck at the national competition.
