Whittier is one of 31 high schools in the Massachusetts chapter of DECA, an acronym for Distributive Education Clubs of America, an international organization where students learn and compete in business management, leadership, marketing, hospitality, and finance skills.
Whittier students that attended are 2nd year DECA members who each participated in three workshops to prepare for a district competition in January. Workshop topics included: worker rights, navigating the college process, dressing for success and interviewing, entrepreneurship, and team decision making.
