Holiday treats arrived early for members of the Washington & Lee High School DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) who won their way to the DECA State Competition. The students participated for the second time and were rewarded for their efforts in Business Service Marketing, Business Management, and Hotel and Lodging Management. They competed against students from Spotsylvania, King George, Manassas, and Stafford.
Recognized for their expertise were Tresure Tate, 2nd place in Business Service Marketing for role play and overall competition; and Keyniya Washington, 3rd place for role play in Hotel and Lodging Management. The W&L DECA club is in its second year of operation and currently has seven members. The teacher advisor, Kristina Sanders hopes to build up the membership.
DECA advisor, Mrs. Kristina Sanders noted on their win, “I am so very proud of these wonderful students. These students have worked very hard; often three plus hours each week with CTE instructor, Mr. Ray Eaton practicing and preparing for the competition. Their hard work has paid off! I look forward to seeing these students doing amazing things at the state competition in February.”
