ROSSFORD -The was plenty of bling in the Penta Career Center board room Wednesday as more than two dozen students showed off the trophies they won in state competition.
The Penta school board at its meeting also agreed to go to bid for two new buildings on campus.
Fifty-one Penta students throughout its 16 school-district coverage area qualified at state to continue on to nationals.
Representing Penta in Anaheim, Calif., later this month in the national DECA competition are the following Wood County students:
•    Maria House and Rebecca Reisberg, both of Bowling Green High School, competing as a Business Law and Ethics team.
•    Madi Creps, of Perrysburg High School, competing in Human Resources Management.
•    Hannah Welker and Annie Rutherford, both of Perrysburg High School, competing as a Marketing Communications team.
•    Jordyn Nicholson, of Perrysburg High School, competing in Principles of Finance.
•    Maddie Sulewski and Kelly Printy, both of Perrysburg High School, competing individually in Principles of Hospitality.
•    Jacob Baroncini, Perrysburg High School, competing in Quick Serve Restaurant Series.
•    Israel Vento and Brittany Willinger, both of Bowling Green High School, and Shelby Kerr and Katie Thomas, both of Anthony Wayne High School, competing in the Travel and Tourism Team Management event.
Three Wood County students will travel to Nashville in June to compete in the Future Health Professionals/Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) competition.
•    Corey Lutz, from Otsego High School, will compete in Speaking Skills.
•    Sara Mendoza, from Lake High School, will compete in Medical Terminology.
•    Samantha Troxell, Rossford High School, will compete in Extemporaneous Writing.
At Wednesday's meeting students stepped to the front of the room with their trophies to explain their project to board members.
Individual Penta students from Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Business Professionals of America (BPA) also were recognized, but none of the national competitors are from Wood County.
Penta also is expanding its storage options on its campus on Buck Road. The board approved advertising to bid on two projects, both cold storage buildings.
Near the construction trades wing on the south side of campus, Penta wants to add a non-heated, block brick building for additional storage for the construction lab. The architect estimate for design and construction is $255,150 for the 35 feet by 150 feet building.
The second facility, a non-heated pole barn, will be placed on the south side of campus near the outdoor land lab. The estimate for this 60 feet by 75 feet building is $165,240, according to Rich Birt, Penta's supervisor of operations.
Bids must be received by May 3.
Birt hopes to have construction on both projects start by the end of June. The land lab pole barn should be done by the time school starts in August, but the second facility likely will take longer, he said.
