On Thursday, March 10, and Friday, March 11, ten members of the Methuen DECA club participated in the State Career Development Conference (SCDC) at the Copley Marriott Hotel in Boston. The quiz bowl team of Nika Nyguen, Neil Patel, Andre Lopez, and Jacob Thibault did a great job on their qualifying test but, lost a very close match to a strong Algonquin team. Keegan Lannon, Pryank Patel, and Samuel Branchaud all competed individually with two role plays and a written test. Ryan Hamilton and Haley Hamilton competed as a team in the 'Sports and Entertainment Team Decision Making' category. They were honored on stage Friday night for coming in third for one of the two role plays. Allie Doyle had great success at the SCDC. She finished sixth in the Franchise Business Plan category and also received a $1,000 DECA scholarship. For the third year in a row, Allie spoke at the mini awards session on Friday night on behalf of MDA and kicked off the ‘Miracle Minute MDA Fundraiser' for the evening. Overall the trip was a great experience for our hard-working students.
