DECA is a program available at County for all students. It’s an amazing program in which many students participate in. DECA is a World Wide program, which has more than 215,000 members all over the globe! DECA teaches future leaders and entrepreneurs in finance, marketing, management and hospitality. County’s DECA student participate in running the DECA store, fundraisers, and school events. Ms. Mason and Mrs. Lewin are the DECA teachers here at County. In DECA the students learn about the basic skills of marketing and how to run a business.
Jenna Sharp from Ms. Mason’s class said she enjoys dress up days and being able to experience what proper business feels like. Sharps stated that running the DECA store teaches her how a business should be run and what it needs in order to operate. “I enjoy DECA because it is preparing me for success” said Sharp.
Teagan Chavez from Mrs. Lewin’s class said, “In DECA I enjoy working the store, and learning how a business operates.” Chavez said she finds “learning the logistics of everything in interesting.”
As you can tell many students enjoy the DECA program at county. I would encourage anyone to take DECA if they have the chance. Who knows it may even help you find the career path you were looking for and get a head start on life.
