LINCOLNTON––West Lincoln High School is honoring four of its most distinguished students.
They’re members of the school’s chapter of the DECA (or Distributive Education Clubs of America), and they are sisters Genevieve and Isabella Shutt and Brooke Beddingfield and Hannah Baxter.
As WLHS teacher Clint Spencer, adviser for the school’s DECA chapter, told The Herald on Wednesday, at the recent DECA state competition, held Feb. 27-29 in Greensboro, the Shutt sisters placed third in the business law and ethics team decision-making categories. They will now move on to the DECA’s international competition in Nashville in April.
Congratulations as well went out to Beddingfield and Baxter. They competed in the hospitality and tourism decision-making event at the state competition.
On behalf of West Lincoln, Spencer expressed pride in all of the girls for their accomplishments.
“We are also very proud of Brooke Beddingfield and Hannah Baxter,” he said. “Even though they did not place, Hannah Baxter was able to earn industry certification for her hospitality exam score.”
The DECA organization was formed in 1946. It is a non-for-profit career and technical organization, with nearly a quarter of a million members throughout all 50 American states, Canada, Germany, Mexico, China and elsewhere.
