FHS DECA Chapter wins big at the Mass. State Career Dev. Conference


FHS DECA took on the Massachusetts State Career Development Conference (SCDC) this past weekend at the Hynes Convention Center.

Several students placed in the top 10 in the following categories...

  • Integrated Marketing Communication (Event and Product)
  • Entrepreneurship Team Decision Making
  • Business Growth Plan
  • Finance Operations
  • Research and Sports & Entertainment Marketing Operations Research

Congratulations to DECA members Sid Chandra, Jay Gorgas and Aayush Srinivas who won the Hospitality and Tourism Operations Research event and to FHS Chapter President Nihara Lijan for winning the Innovation Plan event!

The entire FHS DECA team represented Franklin proudly at the state level. Going forward, 7 students were chosen to compete at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando. Congratulations to Sid Chandra, Jay Gorgas, Aayush Srinivas, Nihara Lijan, Jack Hagerty, Kieran Mitchell and Anurag Kavishwar for qualifying!

"I am so incredibly proud of these students. On average, students devote about 10-15 hours per week working on their DECA projects and preparation. These students compete against some of the best students in the state to get to SCDC, so to have 80 students attend, and have so many winners, is a testament to the hard work and efforts of our students. I could not be more proud" said Paul Cadenhead, Franklin DECA club advisor and FHS business teacher.
