Students Earn Multiple Honors at Suffolk DECA Competition

Over 100 students from Babylon High School participated in the Suffolk County Regional Distributive Education Club of America (DECA) competition on Jan. 4 at Suffolk Community College, and 48 of them went home as prizewinners.
Eight of the students placed in the top three of their respective events, including first-place finishes by Kerry Glenday (Hotel & Lodging Management), Nick Santorelli (General Marketing), Kelly Corcoran (Retail Merchandising), and Jessica Altieri (Decision Making Marketing). Seniors Kate Wilson (Broadcast Advertising) and Taylor Middleton (Apparel & Accessories Marketing) earned second-place finishes, while the team of Greg Dieterich and Bryan Hubert notched third-place in the Travel and Tourism category.
"Our students represented Babylon well with their professional dress and outstanding behavior," said Claire P. Reilly, Babylon High School's Director of Practical Arts. "Mr. Andrew Marulis and I would like to thank all of our participants for a great day at Suffolk DECA."
