Bill introduced Casie Parker, the DECA teacher from the High School. She introduced Anna Sumpter who will be the DECA State President for the 17/18 year, who gave us an overview of the program and then introduced 2 groups that gave us the presentations that they gave which qualified them for Nationals:

Group 1: Alley Hass

              Alley Van Antwerp

              Hadley Hass

Group 2: Lauren Gasko

              Cedra Beer

President Kent presented the group with a $6000 check to help them offset the cost of attending both the State and National competitions. This was money that came from Diamond’s and Denim 2016
