Saturday’s success by Gibraltar’s DECA Chapter at its Northeast Wisconsin District Competition is a sign for things to come for the future of northern Door County’s tourism industry. Sophomores Connor Duffy (2nd place, Principles of Hospitality Series) and Brandon Stillman (3rd place, Hotel and Lodging Management Series) placed in their respective categories, earning a state berth for their high scores in the 100 question examination and role-playing scenarios. Gibraltar DECA advisor Mary Witteborg says the students are blessed to have the opportunity to learn and grow in the tourism industry and put those skills to work.
Duffy and Stillman will move on to compete at the State Career Development Conference in Lake Geneva during the first week in March.
