Lawrence High School juniors Jonathan Rutchik, Jessica Beyer and Victoria DiCeglio did well enough at the state DECA conference March 5-7 in Rochester to advance to the International Career Conference in Atlanta May 2-7.

Rutchik finished third on his test and role play in the Hospitality and Tourism Professional Sales category. Beyer placed fourth in Professional Sales and DiCeglio finished sixth in Fashion Merchandising Promotion Plan.

Maxine Kastriner placed sixth in Hospitality and Tourism Professional Sales, Ryan Bae and Thomas Lira received medals for top 10 finishes in Professional Sales and Business Service Marketing, respectively.

This is the ninth consecutive year that the Lawrence DECA chapter, a relatively small group, according to Mark Albin, a business teacher and chapter advisor, will be competing at the International conference.

DECA provides opportunities for students to develop skills in the areas of vocational understanding, leadership development, civic consciousness and social intelligence.
