Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Pottstown School District.

Pottstown High School student members of the DECA Club, learned that hard work can result in a sweet reward. Students took part in the District 8 DECA competition held in King of Prussia at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Twelve team members successfully advanced to the state event held in chocolate-sweet Hershey, PA.

Under the direction of teachers Vickie McShea and Kevin Pascal; students took a 100 question content-based test and completed a situational role play.

During the District 8 event Trojan DECA members matched their skills against teams from The Hill School, Norristown, Northampton, Owen J. Roberts, Pottsgrove, and Spring-Ford. When they travel the sweet road to Hershey for the state competition, they will face representatives from 78 other chapters to vie for state honors.
