NH DECA students to compete in Atlanta
DECA describes itself as an association that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
Kliskey, 17, said his mom wanted him to become a doctor, but he wasn't at all interested.
He plans to attend business school, preferably Bentley College in Waltham, Mass., and to eventually have his own business. "I want to open my own sports agency," he said. "I love DECA."
Kliskey placed first overall in role play and second in the international business plan, a 30-page paper plus a presentation, in the sports and entertaintment marketing categories.
Memorial traditionally sends the largest contingent to the international competition, with Manchester High School West sending six and Manchester High School Central sending 10 this year.
