Moraine Park Technical College students Jennifer Abraham of Plymouth and Kelly Brumley of Randolph were national finalists in the business-to-business marketing competition at the Distributive Education Clubs of America’s (DECA) 61st annual International Career Development Conference held in Orlando, Florida, in late April.
They received an award for being one of the top 10 teams in the Business-to-Business Marketing Case Study.
A third Moraine Park student, Stephanie Newby of Fond du Lac, was one of three student marketing club presidents honored at the awards ceremony for her work on starting the Moraine Park chapter of Delta Epsilon Chi – Wisconsin Marketing & Management Association (WMMA), the collegiate division of DECA.
The three Marketing – Business-to-Business students had taken part in the state competition of the WMMA, held March 7-11 in Madison.
Abraham was also honored for receiving a $1,000 academic scholarship from NAPA Auto Parts for her active participation in WMMA, excellence on the job and her high academic standing.
