Over the weekend, 46 Beverly Hills High School students participated in the DECA SoCal Career Development Competition in Anaheim with 26 students receiving top three recognition in all aspects of events. The three-day conference brought together roughly 300 students throughout the Southland to compete in a variety of simulated business situations.
“These kids not only wanted to be there, but they brought the sense of strong integrity and strong work ethic representing Beverly Hills to this conference,” said PTSA Boardmember and trip chaperone Jennifer Terrell. Terrell’s son, BHHS sophomore Jacob Schwartz, received second place in sports and entertainment marketing.
Terrell credited team advisor Coach Charlie Stansbury, who meets every monday at lunch with the team, with teaching the students how to think strategically and quickly respond to possible scenarios.
Next month, the BHHS DECA team heads to Santa Clara for the state competition.
