DECA advances to International Career Development Conference
March 1, 2016| Academically Prepared |For the third straight year, Porter DECA will
be represented at the International Career Development Conference (CDC). Porter
DECA took 21 students, a school record, to the Texas DECA CDC in San Antonio.
Students competed in events from International Business to
Sports & Entertainment Marketing. Porter High School was well represented
throughout the convention, putting their best foot forward in each event.
Among the awards brought home, Porter High School earned a
runner-up position in the Community Service Project, spearheaded by Ashlynn
Droddy and Kaitlyn Matthews.
The biggest awards came during the annual business meeting when
Porter DECA picked up six spots at the prestigious THRIVE Academy for their
efforts with their Membership, Community Service, and Promotional Campaigns.
Spots for any of the academies at ICDC are extremely difficult to come by, as only
90 of about 13,000 students from Texas have the opportunity to attend.
