GMHS DECA conquers Orlando

Granby Memorial High School DECA students John Grindal, David Migliaccio, Alessandra Boffi, Erin Moody and Daniel Litin were Ready For It as they joined over 22,000 other DECA members, advisors, and business professionals in Orlando, Florida, for the largest International Career Development Conference (ICDC) ever! 

GMHS DECA students in attendance gained first-hand professional, industry knowledge, tested their academic prowess against the nation’s best competitors, attained 21st century career skills through their events and DECA experiences, explored a global network of students and entrepreneurs, and took advantage of the hospitality and tourism that Orlando offers. 

Connecticut DECA students were housed at the Renaissance at Seaworld and enjoyed luxurious amenities and accommodations during their visit along with a few special days in the Disney, Universal Studios, and Seaworld theme parks in addition to their academics and studies. DECA’s motto: ​work hard, play hard!
