Just recently, on January 14th, the Moon Valley DECA Chapter competed at a regional event featuring more than fifteen schools and over 1300 students.  DECA is a club for students who have passion and ambition for a career in business and marketing.  The gathering took place at the Phoenix Convention Center where two member teams from the conglomeration of schools locked horns in a battle of marketing role play scenarios.  Members of local businesses volunteered to be judges who found favor towards our Rocket competitors.  Led by teacher Curtis Folkman, our students earned seven spots in this year’s state competition.  Congratulations are owed to the following future business leaders:

v  Hospitality and Services Management: Tanya Munoz and Stephanie Banxarath
v  Travel and Tourism Management: Mario Espinoza and Andrei Marinescu
v  Buying and Merchandising: Nick Ramirez and Antonio Herrera and….

Last but not least, finishing FIRST in his section, Christian Anderson.  He won in the area of Sports and Entertainment Management in that individual competition.  We wish these skillful winners luck at the next round in the state competition which will take place in March.
