With more than a dozen students earning top spots in this spring’s regional DECA competition, Lynn Camp knows the importance of career and technical education.
DECA is a student organization for those in marketing and business pathways in high school. It allows students, like those from Knox County, the opportunity to showcase and promote achievements and accomplishments in their pathway.
At the regional DECA competition held at Eastern Kentucky University, Lynn Camp marketing students did just that. In a variety of competitive events, and during a day of studying, rehearsing and making new friends, the students shined during the awards ceremony.
Receiving awards at the spring DECA conference were:
Sierra Bertrand and Christopher Simpson, Sports and Entertainment Operations Research
Elijah Brock, Vonlee Howell, and Lori Mullins, Integrated Marketing Campaign Event
Masyn Mitchell, Shyanne Parker, and Julia Shepherd, Sales Project
Olivia Dozier, Hotel and Lodging Management
Hannah Foley, Quick Serve Restaurant Management
Domanick Cook, Principles of Marketing
Jayden Dunn, Apparel and Accessories Marketing
Isabella Vanderpool, Principles in Business Administration
The Importance of Career and Technical Education
In the month of February our career and technical programs participate in CTE Month®. CTE is education that directly prepares students for high-wage, high-demand careers. CTE covers many different fields, including health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing, hospitality and management and many more. CTE Month is a public awareness campaign that takes place each February to celebrate the value of CTE and the achievements and accomplishments of CTE programs across the country.
