    DECA members win again!

    Our DECA chapter had great success again at the recent state competition in Hershey. Advisors Mrs. Kirby and Mrs. Seitchik took 50 students to the competition, and they came home with 64 medals for high scores on written tests and role plays in our division! Some students received multiple medals! Our District Representative, Preston Johns, also came home with a trophy for Job Interview. Ben Moshnyager missed a trophy by 3 points out of a total of 300 possible points so he was very disappointed. We are proud of all students who participated in the state competition. Congratulations to our 2013 GWHS state winners.
