Carolina Car Club and Highway 55 (at Sun Valley Commons) have agreed to partner with UCEC to host a cruise in where the proceeds will support the Career Management program at UCEC.

Congrats to UCEC DECA club on their accomplishments at the NC DECA State Career Conference. Over 3200 students from across the state participated in the competitive events. Our DECA club had 2 state winners who are now invited to the International Career Conference. They were Spencer Ellis , who placed 2nd in the state in his event of Principles of Finance and Sarah Wienecke, who placed 3rd in the state in her event of Principles of Business and Administration. 100% of all UCEC DECA members were honored and recognized for achieving proficient status. This means each member in their competitive event scored higher then a 70%. All their hard work and preparation for their events paid off. This is an amazing accomplishment since it was UCEC’s first year and the fact they we don’t offer business courses here on the high school side. In addition, DECA members who took the Hospitality and Tourism Cluster Exam at the state conference and scored at least 70% are eligible for American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute Certification in Guest Services Professionalism. The two UCEC DECA members who earned this are Ezequiel Rivera and Sara Sawyers Congrats to all. This was an amazing trip and a great way to show the state and the world we are serious about our careers! A special thank you to Mrs. Bell and Mrs. Coppedge for attending the conference with our DECA adviser Miss Schmitt.
