Farmingdale High School DECA students traveled to Rochester to compete in the annual New York State Career Conference. They attended leadership workshops and networked with over 2,400 students from New York State before competing in individual role play, team role play, and presentation events. Nine Dalers were recognized; Peter Fernandez, Dean Chang, Brendan Gigante, Alex Alameda, Olivia Asencio, Arianna Grant, Anthony Ciaravino, and Brian Stabile.
Junior Yusra Mir claimed the top spot in New York State for Retail Merchandising and qualified for the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Orlando. Yusra's victory was Farmingdale's first-ever Retail Merchandising win, and she is Farmingdale's first female student to place first.
