On Nov. 30, eighty-two Apex High School students represented the Apex DECA Chapter at the Raleigh Convention Center for the annual DECA District Competition. Competitors took part in career cluster exams and demonstrated their business savvy through role-play scenarios. Of the eighty-two, eighteen competitors placed as top ten finalists with either exceptional exam or role-play scores. The Apex DECA Chapter, and Apex High School overall, were well acknowledged during the awards session as senior Wrigley Ferguson and sophomore Melissa Patrocinio each took home a 1st place category finalist trophy, Erin O’Hara collected a 4th place trophy, and Emily Sartin received a 5th place trophy. All Apex DECA competitors are qualified to advance to the DECA State Competition that will take place March 9 through 11 in Greensboro, NC at the Koury Convention Center.
