Thirty-three business students from Northport High School recently traveled to Rochester in order to compete in the DECA State Career Development Conference. While each state-qualifying participant competed against more than 2,500 other students, Northport students Olivia Caulfield, Faith Gillin, Ayla Lerner, Tage Oster and Katerina Wettengel were each named one of the top ten in their category.

DECA, a nationwide business club, prepares student leaders and emerging entrepreneurs to be business-world ready. This conference included competitive events by specific areas of focus: business management and administration, entrepreneurship, finance, hospitality and tourism, marketing, and personal financial literacy.
