Roberson’s Distributive Clubs of America (DECA) program competed in the state competition in Greensboro March 8 through March 10. The group, led by teachers Amberle Dalton and Michelle Thomas, took around 25 students to compete in a variety of categories. During the competition, students take a test and participate in a role play activity, and they are then scored based on how they perform in those events. The following participants competed and placed in these individual categories:
Senior Ge’Kovie Jackson medaled in Role Play for Quick Serve
Junior Emily Fine medaled twice in Test and Role Play in Apparel and Accessories
Senior Oscar Rodriguez medaled twice in Test and Role Play in Sports Marketing.
Sophomore John Gillespie was a finalist in Personal Finance.
Sophomore Jason Ramos was a finalist in Business Growth Plan.
Senior Corinne Jenkins won 4th place overall in Marketing Communications.
Junior Hayden Askea medaled in Role Play and received 5th place overall in Food Marketing.
Junior Amy Webster medaled in Test and won 2nd place overall in Personal Finance.
The finalists and top 5 individuals of each category will be going to nationals, including Roberson students Webster, Askea, Ramos, Gillespie and Jenkins.
We wish DECA the best of luck as they compete April 23 through April 26 in Atlanta, Georgia.
