Four members of the Liverpool High School DECA Club competed at the New York State DECA Competition from March 10 to 12. Junior Matthew Gillmore, senior Sarah Milligan, junior John LaRue and senior Max Luttinger were among 1,800 students from across the state who participated in the competition, which tests students' knowledge of marketing, management and entrepreneurship.
LHS senior Sarah Milligan earned first place in the accounting division, and is now eligible to compete during the International DECA Competition to be held April 30 to May 3 in Orlando, Fla. She placed in the Top 10 in several categories: overall, written exam, role play before judge number one and role play before judge number two.
LHS junior John LaRue also earned a Top 10 finish in the accounting division in the overall and role play before a judge, and senior Max Luttinger earned a Top 10 finish in the financial applications division in the overall and written exam categories.
