A group of 28 business students from the high school’s DECA club recently competed at DECA’s New York State Career Development Conference in Rochester, with two pairs of Deer Park students earning trophies.    

Jasleen Kaur and Amar Qasir came in second place in the Financial Services team event, while Eiman Nawaz and Yasmeen Syedda-Hensley won fifth place in Travel & Tourism. These four trophy winners qualified to compete against more than 18,000 high school students from across the country and around the world at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida at the end of April.

Additional Deer Park standouts in the business battle against more than 2,000 high school students from across the state included top 10 scorers Isabella Coon and Logan Eisenberg for Financial Services, James Hope for Food Marketing, Saima Hoque for Principles of Finance, Omar Rahim for Human Resources, Alyssa Robb for Restaurant & Food Service Management, Tasfia Shaikh for Retail Merchandising, Chaim Shames for Business Finance, Keryn Shames for Financial Consulting, and Esteysy Yanes-Amaya for Personal Financial Literacy.

“Congratulations to all of the students on a job well done,” said DECA adviser Gregory Menig.

Additionally, Qasir was inducted into the New York DECA Honor Society for his outstanding grades and business studies.
