Thanks to a $4,000 donation from Woburn Municipal Federal Credit Union, nine students from Woburn Memorial High School will have the opportunity to attend DECA’s state competition this March.

DECA is an international organization that prepares students to be business leaders and entrepreneurs through competitions, conferences, and professional development. The Massachusetts’ state competition, being held on March 7th-9th in Boston, will include a team competition, key-note speakers, and leadership activities. It’s an opportunity for students to practice critical thinking, creativity, and many other important soft skills.

WMFCU President and CEO, James McCorkle, and VP of Finance, Frank Harmon, presented the generous check to the students who will be attending the conference and business teacher, Jennifer Keenan.

The nine students attending are Noah Dhaliwal, Anthony Colombo, Zachary Willis, John Kyle, Shahil Patel, Sierra Bazzarella, Ashley Danizio, Ariana Capozzi, and Ferdinando Parziale.
