DECA Update

  • DECA Officer Ben Smith and two-year member Brianna Davis organized a Dodgeball Tournament in support of Danny Hill and Throw Cancer a Curveball. Brianna and Ben recruited local sponsorships from the business community. A special THANK YOU goes out to Harriett's Energy, Medford Bagel Shop and Riviera Pizza for their monetary donations towards the foundation. Additionally, Sports Paradise donated an engraved trophy and PJ Whelihan's donated some of the gift certificates for the winning team. The Dodgeball Tournament was a huge success with over 80 students in attendance! We look forward to presenting a check to Throw Cancer a Curveball!!!

  • Shawnee DECA hosted our first "mini" awards ceremony. The Regionals Competition highlights the students that qualified for DECA, however they do not acknowledge the students that were top scorers in their categories. We hosted our first awards ceremony acknowledging all of the students that competed and handed out awards to the top test scorers and role play performances! Awards and sweets were shared with all who attended.
