Zorian Black earns trip to DECA Nationals

Springfield, MO— High school student Zorian Black has achieved the title of State Qualifier in the Food Marketing Series with DECA. Additionally, he secured a second award as a National Qualifier for his Viking Venue Marketing Campaign.

DECA, which stands for Distributive Education Clubs of America, is a program designed for high school and college students interested in business. The organization aims to equip emerging leaders and entrepreneurs with skills for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.

“I received this award for placing first in the Food Marketing Individual series. I competed against peers from my district in a series of role plays. I also took a test and achieved the highest overall score among them,” remarked Zorian. Zorian will travel to California in March to compete in the National DECA competition.

Zorian is a senior at Springfield Parkview High School, a SAAB (B2B) member, and attends youth ministry at Deliverance Temple Ministries.
