High School Announcements

On November 28th, 25 students from the NCH DECA program traveled to The Ohio State University for their annual DECA Career Day, which includes tickets to an Ohio State Men's Basketball game.  The students spent the day touring the Ohio Stadium, listening to various speakers from the world of business & marketing, and finding out what they should be doing in high school if they want to attend The Ohio State University for college.  In the evening the students got to enjoy an ACC-Big 10 Challenge game as OSU hosted Syracuse in an ESPN2 televised game.  The students represented the NCH DECA program, NCH City Schools, and our community extremely well, and I could not be more proud of them.  I have included some pictures of the trip. A BIG SHOUT-OUT and THANK YOU to Mr. Dershem for organizing the trip.

Attention NCH Community,
This past weekend students participated in The DECA Central Region Leadership Conference.  The DECA Central Region Leadership Conference is the 2nd biggest conference our students can attend (only the International Career Development Conference, which you must qualify for, is bigger).  DECA students from the 13 midwest states (Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Wisconsin, Kansas, Kentucky, North Dakota, and South Dakota) make up the Central Region of DECA, and there were nearly 2,000 students in attendance in Detroit this weekend.  The conference design is for students to experience fast-paced activities and events with the aim of expanding knowledge in marketing, management, entrepreneurship, and DECA in preparing them to be future business leaders and entrepreneurs.  It is held in November because that is DECA month and it serves as a motivator for the DECA school year.  Three of our DECA chapter officers (Cori Beam, Christian Easton, and Joe Adams) attended/participated as they work to improve our DECA chapter and strive to return NCH DECA to the International Conference, which we have missed the last (2) years after a run of (7) straight years qualifying.  One underclassman (Brianna Casey) attended/participated as she has stepped forward in her desire to be a future DECA leader at NCH.  The students did a wonderful job in completing DECA practice events, attending workshops on leadership, DECA competition, and business & entrepreneurship.  The hope is the students can bring back their experiences and knowledge gained, and share it with the rest of our DECA students here at NCH.  And of course, we had some fun...meeting new people, dancing, eating, and celebrating DECA!  This is the 2nd group of NCH DECA members to attend the conference in Detroit, as we participated back in 2012.  Next year, the Central Region DECA Leadership Conference will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota! 
NCH Administration wants to thank Mr. Dershem for his continued support and enthusiasm for our students and the DECA program (see pictures attached from the event)

Attention NCH Community,
