Chatham Charter high school students have had successes at recent state level club competitions.

The Chatham Charter chapter of DECA, an organization of marketing students, was successful in competitive events during the 77th North Carolina DECA Career Development Conference (CDC). The conference was held virtually due to COVID-19.

The Chatham Charter trophy and top 10 winners were:

• Gracie Agnew, 2nd Place, Hospitality & Tourism Professional Selling and recipient of $1,000 Sonya W. Dismuke Scholarship

• Abbey Gaines, 4th Place, Integrated Marketing Campaign-Service; Top Test Score

• Elphie Spillman, Marketing Communications Series Event Top 10 Finalist

These students are set to compete at DECA’s Virtual International Career Development Conference April 19-23. Additionally, Chatham Charter DECA’s school-based enterprise (SBE) was among 246 school-based enterprises achieving Gold Certification for the 2020-2021 school year. The SBE also will be recognized during DECA’s Virtual International Career Development Conference.

Three Chatham Charter Senior Beta Club members earned recognition for submissions at the state level Senior Beta competitions that were held virtually in 2021.

• Abbey Gaines: 3rd place, Jewelry Division II

• Silas Christenbury: 3rd place, Color Photography, Division I

• Leah Jones: 4th place, Digital Art Division II
