DECA - Competition 2017 - Truman

DECA Competition - January 2017‚Äč

It is with great pride that I share the results of the DECA competition on Friday, January 13, 2017. We did GREAT! I'd also like to thank the best and most supportive staff I have ever worked with.  Not only did the students represent themselves in a professional manner and dress professionally they also were very successful. It is my honor to announce that we brought home 18 medals and have 27 that will move on to the state competition in March. In addition to those 27 we also had 6 students who have scores high enough to be considered alternates. This means that if the person above them who qualified cannot attend states they will get moved up. The members of Truman High School’s DECA club have impressed me more than ever this year.

Below is a list of the students who are working so hard on some amazing projects.  If you know any of these young men and women, take a minute to congratulate them on their success. STATES HERE WE COME!
