The Foothill High School DECA program had a record 51st place in the top 10 at the California DECA Career Development Conference last month, and 23 students advanced to the International Career Development Conference in Atlanta.

More than 1,300 high school students competed in the conference, which took place in Anaheim, and more than 10,000 DECA members are expected to take part in the international conference from April 23 to 26. DECA is a nonprofit student organization with nearly 175,000 members in 3,200 high schools in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and Germany.

To qualify for Atlanta, students had to take fifth place or better in the role-play categories or fourth place or better in state-level writing competitions.

“I’m just thrilled with our team’s record achievements,” said Tammy Racker, Tri-Valley Professional Program Instructor and Foothill DECA Advisor. “They keep setting the bar higher and higher every year, and I can’t be more pleased with their success.”

The Foothill DECA program received awards at the state conference for advocacy, community service, and leadership development efforts. In addition, Tom Hall, the father of the Foothill DECA student, was named the father of the year at the California DECA, and Foothill DECA graduate Rachel Orpina was named the California DECA graduate of the year.

Kate Clifford, student director of technology at Foothill DECA, has been appointed vice president of marketing for the government organization.

Four Foothill students qualified for the international competition in two nominations.

Pranesh Ragu and Ashwin Sriram, who took first place in the category “Integrated Marketing Company – Services”, also qualified as a team in the field of purchasing and merchandising decision-making. Obkhinov Tata, who took first place in the human resource management series, also qualified in the “Franchise Business Plan” category, and Emma Lynn will compete in both the “Fast Food Restaurant Management” category and the “Business Growth Plan” category.
