In early March, forty students from Babylon Junior-Senior High School traveled to Rochester to compete in New York DECA’s 60th annual State Career Conference. Facing more than 3,200 DECA students during this four-day event, the Babylon students had an impressive showing once again. DECA is Babylon’s largest co-curricular club, which means that the topic areas in which students compete are also taught in the business classroom.
At the conference, Babylon was one of 10 New York schools to receive the community service award for its fundraising efforts for The National Suicide Prevention Hotline. Eight students were inducted into the New York State DECA Honor Society for active business students with excellent DECA achievement: Erin Corcoran, Jill Camilleri, Kate Hannon, Meghan Nachemin, Maddy Graham, Allie Van Rossem, Darby Dreher and Megan Burke. In addition, Megan Burke, Erin Corcoran, Allie Van Rossem and Kate Hannon earned four top 10 awards, Noah Kowalewsky earned two top 10 awards, and Lily Hagen, Meghan Nachemin, Bridget Hannon and Darby Dreher earned one top 10 award each.
