FHS marketing students qualify for Dallas competition

They’re going to the Big D.

About fifteen marketing students at Farragut High School are eligible for the April 29–May 2 international Distributive Education Clubs of America competition in Dallas.

DECA is an association of marketing students across the United States and in several foreign countries, FHS teacher Vickie Love said.

After sending students to regional competitions in February, and state competitions in March, 11 scored high enough to move on to the International DECA Career Development Conference and Competitive Events program that will include about 15,000 students, Love said.

Love said she expects another four to be eligible after the Stock Market Game ends. Students competed in various career areas, some individually and some on teams.

Amy Dunning and Faith Wagner won the state competition in hospitality services.

Sreetham Das and Nicole Wolf won in e-commerce. Sean Hensley and John Wilson won in financial analysis. Ben Hyman and Richard Lo won in business law and ethics. These students were required to take a test in their related areas and participate in presenting a solution to a case study in their area.

In the individual events, Andrew Cheng won accounting applications and Cassie Mellon won marketing management. They participated in two role-play situations and one test in a related area.

Charlie Sells won in technical sales with his presentation on a technical product for the restaurant industry.

Two teams of students are leading in the southern region in the Stock Market Game, and Love expects both to become regional finalists and also compete in Dallas.

Four students, Perry Griffin, Stephen Guerrette, Richard Lo and Jordan McGrew, were first-place winners in the state virtual business and virtual sports program.

The marketing and management program at Farragut is in its nineth year, Love said. Students enroll in their junior year and can continue their senior year if space permits. It is a very popular program at Farragut High, she said, and the school is not able to accommodate all of the students that have an interest in marketing and management.
