Verona High School junior Filip F. Babalievsky has been notified that he came in first in the written examination for Automotive Services Marketing at the International DECA Competition in Orlando earlier this month. DECA is a business education program offered at VHS that includes regional, state and nation-wide competitions at which students’ knowledge is tested through written and oral presentations. Babalievsky and the two other VHS competitors, Paul Corrente and Marc Cortese,  placed in the top 30% of those competing in their events in Florida, which was attended by 15,000 students. Babalievsky’s placement is a first for Verona, as was having three students place in the top 30%.
