ANCHOR BAY HIGH SCHOOL DECA
All Marketing students are encouraged to join the Anchor Bay DECA Club. DECA is an “Association of Marketing Students” who are planning careers in business, marketing, management and entrepreneurship. DECA provides opportunities for its members to explore career options, gain real-world experience, and take on leadership roles. These competitive events give students the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge through both written and role playing events. Our 38 Club members competed at District Competition this year in January at Lake Orion High School. Sixteen of our members were medalists at the District level and are moving on to compete at the State Level at the Hyatt Regency, in Dearborn, on March 9, 10, and 11, 2012. These members are: Erin Binienda, Jacob Bowling, Zachary Zajdel, Bianca Burns, Erin Fortune, Jennifer Gerlando, Justin Glodich, Jennifer Hackler, Michael Kazmer, Will Kempf, Sterling Morrison, Amanda Simon, Elizabeth Walker, Lauren Williams, Eric Andrews, Craig Lenhausen and Thomas Liss.
Congratulations and Good Luck to all our DECA members and State Competition!!!
JINGLE BELL RUN/MDA SHAMROCK SALES
The DECA Club students are also involved in many community service projects. The JINGLE BELL RUN is a 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk. JBR this year is scheduled for Sunday, December 9, 2012, in downtown New Baltimore. DECA students register participants, prepare for, and work throughout the entire event. Proceeds of Jingle Bell Run benefit the Anchor Bay DECA Club. Make sure to mark the date on your calendar for this year’s Jingle Bell Run. It’s always a fun event, brings many people to our town, and helps our Club.
DECA members sell Shamrocks for MDA during March each year. Last year our club donated $1600.00 to MDA. This sent two children with Muscular Dystrophy to camp during the summer. Our Shamrock Sales are in full swing now. We are hoping to exceed last year’s donation. Stop by the Nautical Shoppe or ask a DECA member to buy a Shamrock for MDA!
School Store Managers run The Nautical Shoppe, our school store. Managers are in charge of everything necessary to run a retail establishment, from ordering and running the register, to inventory and cost control.
The Nautical Shoppe has been very busy again this year. From hoodies to sweats, to band equipment and school supplies, we have it all. We also offer fresh flowers and gifts in the Floral Department of the store. The student run store is open for business to serve our two thousand students daily between 10:30 a.m. and noon.
