Katie Brown, Morgan Jameson, and Mackenzie Senogles earned finalist recognition at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Fla. April 25-28. The Bay Port High School students competed at the event along with 11 teammates as part of their membership in the school’s DECA club.
Jameson and Senogles, both seniors, competed in the Learn & Earn event in which students create and run a small enterprise. The two girls put on the “Mr. Bay Port” show this past January and created a 30-page manual along with a 10-minute presentation that documented the event. Based on their presentation and written score, the duo was selected as finalists, beating out 150+ teams from around the world. The two became Bay Port’s third international finalists in school history.
Brown, a junior, competed in Fashion Merchandising where she developed a promotional plan for a local business and presented the two-week plan to a judge. Her presentation score along with her results from her 100-point marketing exam earned her a spot as a finalist. She then presented against the other 17 finalists and was awarded a top-10 finish in the final awards ceremony. Brown is only the second person in Bay Port history to achieve this honor.
