On Saturday morning, select Woodford County DECA members headed to the airport. They were headed off to Orlando, where Nationals would be. Over nine countries were there, and with 22,000 competitors, it was going to be a crazy competitive next couple of days. While no one from Woodford managed to place, only three people would manage to get the glass (a plaque given to the top three finishers), amazing memories were made. Here’s a look at what they got to do!
