Middleton DECA had a productive week recently at the State DECA competition in Lake Geneva, with 19 students competing, including three students taking first in their respective events. “I think this definitely showcased how dedicated our chapter is.” said Jackson Rademacher, senior and chapter officer, “We have 14 students competing at Internationals in April, and that’s largely due to the work everyone put in to prepare for this competition.” 

Middleton was also recognized for their commitment to the wider community, receiving a bronze award for the Diamond Dash, a statewide chapter competition.

“Our members are not only dedicated to excelling in competitive events but also to building a stronger community. Throughout the conference, we consistently supported each other and even played group games during downtime,” said chapter President Sneha Chandrashekar.

Middleton will look to continue their success at the International DECA competition taking place in Orlando from April 21st to April 26th.
