The school stores received national certification for outstanding achievement for their School-based Enterprises (SBE) through DECA. 

“Our school stores provide students the foundation to become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs,” Superintendent Dr. Christine Johns said. “Working with their marketing teachers, students are developing the hands-on training to promote, sell, manage and brand their products and services.”

DECA, an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers and education in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe, selected 360 school stores for Gold-level Certification, or Gold Re-certification, from a nationwide competing field of hundreds of schools. 

Eisenhower, Henry Ford II, Stevenson and Utica high schools all received Gold-level Certification.
