Dear CATS Students and Faculty,

Our DECA club competed at a regionals competition earlier last month from January 17-18th in Mansfield, Massachusetts. This was an enlightening and rewarding experience for all the DECA students by providing them with the opportunity to solve real life business issues in a competitive environment. All students participated in a role-play segment to solve issues in the real world of business.

Two representatives of the CATS DECA club, André Massanobu Shibata and Bui Quoc Binh, won awards for to their hard work and outstanding business skills. Tuan Minh Tran and Thanh Long Tran also represented CATS proudly by winning a state award for the DECA Virtual Business Challenge. After the competition was over, all participants enjoyed a follow-up dance and luncheon with many American students and DECA state officers. Overall, the 2018 Regional DECA Competition was a challenging, yet interesting experience for our students who embodied the CATS spirit to strive for success.

On behalf of the DECA Club,

Maya Stoilova
