RMHS DECA Dominates at State


From Thursday, March 3 to Saturday, March 5, some of our very own RMHS DECA members competed in the DECA state competition. For those that don’t know what DECA is, it is a business club for students in which they take a business related test and also participate in a set of role plays. The club itself sets up students to practice marketing, finance, hospitality, and management, by demonstrating leadership and entrepreneurship skills. The DECA members that participated in state have left a huge mark on the program as this was a very successful year for many of the students. 


Here is a list of students that placed highly at the state competition: 



Gage Lockley and Oliver Basza – Team Entrepreneurship 



Kaitlyn Hannon and Marisa Pacocha – Team Travel and Tourism



Dominic Maloberti and Cole Martin – Team Travel and Tourism


These 6 students also qualified for the National Competition!


Additionally the following students placed in the top 10 of their competitions. Most competitions had between 30-50 individuals/teams competing.


Reagan Cherwin and Julia Ingolia – Team Hospitality Services

Evan Eizenga – Entrepreneurship

Nathaniel Georg – Business Finance

Ryan Schoessling – Restaurant and Food Service Management


Huge congratulations to these students!
