Northwest ISD’s Academy of Business Management & Entrepreneurship will send 54 students to the Texas DECA’s State Career Development Conference following the budding business professionals’ qualification for the competition at the District 7 conference.

Texas DECA conferences see students taking part in a variety of career-oriented events across marketing, finance, hospitality and management as well as related fields. DECA competitions are based on co-curricular education that is presented as an integral part of classroom instruction. Students must qualify for the state conference from earlier DECA district conferences; in the business academy’s case, the District 7 conference was held Jan. 14 at Haltom High School.

The business academy, housed in Eaton High School, significantly increased its amount of students going to the state DECA conference this year from its inaugural year in 2015-16, when it sent 17 students. This year’s Texas DECA State Career Development Conference takes place from Feb. 23-25 in San Antonio.

Antonio Banos leads Northwest ISD’s business academy as the facilitator and an instructor with the assistance of Estie Cuellar and Cathy Slagle.
