North High Junior Elected New York DECA President

Nina Goldstein, a junior at North High School, has been elected to serve as president of New York DECA for the 2024–25 school year. New York DECA’s executive officers represent more than 7,000 members, serve as ambassadors for DECA programs, and organize the State Career Conference where thousands of students compete at the state level.

Nina launched her state officer campaign at the start of this school year with her campaign manager, fellow North High junior Jessica Ong. Nina was one of 15 candidates running for a position on the state officer board.

During the New York State DECA Conference in Rochester on March 6-8, Nina campaigned in-person to win votes from delegates across the state. On the final night of the conference, it was announced that Nina won the popular vote and was elected DECA State President.

Nina joined the North High DECA Chapter as a sophomore and immediately showed her leadership ability. At the end of her first year, she was accepted to the school’s DECA officer team. This year, Nina has served as a role play officer, which is a leadership position that helps students practice role plays in preparation for competitions, and she ran a marketing bootcamp for North High DECA members.

In addition to her participation in DECA, Nina is president of the North High Debate Team, an officer for Model UN, and a three-year member of the varsity cheerleading team.

The North High DECA Chapter has more than 200 student members and is one of the largest chapters in New York State. DECA advisors at North High are Richard Marchese and Paul Rodriguez.

DECA is a global organization that prepares students for college and careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Members develop leadership abilities through rigorous project-based activities and demonstrate their knowledge through business partnerships and competitions.
