The high school’s Distributive Educational Clubs of America club hosted a special installation ceremony for new officers who will lead the team for the 2017-2018 school year under the direction of adviser Nela Hawthorne.

DECA is an international association of high school and college students and teachers of management and entrepreneurship, business, finance, hospitality and marketing sales and service. The ceremony featured the team’s current officers speaking about the wide array of skills they have acquired and honed as a result of their membership, and how their experiences have shaped them as they prepare to begin their college careers. The new officers — co-presidents Jaidiver Morales and Sadiki Skeete; co-vice presidents Justin Budhu and Jhon Sandoval; historian Audrey Arias; treasurer Krystel Chombo; secretary Miranda Perez; and Parliamentarian Jennifer Perez — raised their right hands and pledged to represent the team with pride and dignity.

The ceremony also featured students being inducted into the Freeport Chapter of the New York State Business and Marketing Honor Society, and a special plaque presented by Hawthorne to Principal Linda Carter, who was named an honorary DECA member.
