Two students from East Meadow High School’s DECA club qualified to participate in the national competition at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida on April 27 after excelling at the state competition in March.

Freshman Kush Upadiyay became the first DECA student from East Meadow High School to qualify for the ICDC national round.  Kush did so by earning a third-place finish in the topic of principles of finance with an instructional area of customer service. Matt Owens also earned a trip to ICDC by qualifying in the area of accounting. 

The district congratulates Kush and Matt while also wishing them the best of luck at the national competition!
