SK DECA qualifies for international competition in Nashville

Students write in-depth business report on Lobo Froyo student store

PORT ORCHARD — In the commons of South Kitsap High School resides Lobo Froyo, the gold-certified, school-based retail store enterprise.

In the 2017-2018 school year, South Kitsap DECA’s Lobo Froyo student store, under new DECA advisor Betsi Feider, was recertified by students for the second year in a row. This year, Feider enlisted the help of Lobo Froyo’s student managers Emily Irvine and Delaney DeTray to complete the task.

The DECA student store is open during lunches and serves frozen yogurt, cookies and other related items.

Together, they collaborated to write an in-depth business report on Lobo Froyo’s finances, merchandising assortment and product pricing. The report qualified the DECA team on Feb. 5 so that they will be able to attend DECA’s 2020 International Career Development Conference in Nashville, where they will present Lobo Froyo’s pricing strategies and make South Kitsap proud.

By qualifying this year’s school-based enterprise recertification paper, Irvine and DeTray accomplished the feat of composing a 25-page written paper explaining the intricacies of Lobo Froyo’s operations.

With graduation coming up this year, DeTray wanted to create a lasting impact on her DECA chapter. In addition to co-writing this year’s SBE paper, she also co-authored the “Bowling for a Cause” 20-page community service DECA project, as well. As a second-year DECA student, Irvine wrote alongside DeTray in the hopes of attending national competition once again.

In 2019, Irvine attended DECA’s International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida, with a 20-page paper in hand. Both say they are excited to attend the competition and “can’t wait to win!”
