DECA Students Win Honors

Foothill's DECA students competed this week in the Tri-Valley Mini Conference held at Livermore High School.

More than 150 students from five local schools took part in the conference. This was the first competition of the school year, designed to prepare students for the Northern California Career Development Conference to be held in San Ramon in January.

This week's competition was fierce, but Foothill students fared well against their formidable opponents.
