Six members from Alma DECA attended the Alma Rotary Club meeting on April 3 and shared information about their participation in the Marketing Education / DECA Program with Rotary members.

Alma DECA members who shared their DECA stories included Shivam Raja, Elissa Williams, Seth Cole, Michelle Wells, Emily O’Kelley and BrayLyne White.

The DECA members touched on topics such as being aware of the importance of becoming academically prepared, bring community oriented, knowing how to be professionally responsible, becoming an experienced leader and how participating in DECA is helping them reach their goals during high school and preparing them for their life after high school.

Following their presentation, Rotary President Clovis Satterfield surprised the students with a donation from Alma Rotary to help with expenses to attend the International DECA Career Development Conference which will be held in Orlando, Fla., later this month.

Alma DECA is grateful for the donation from Alma Rotary that is helping the ICDC delegates meet their educational goals.
