Booker T. Washington High School DECA
January Chapter Chatter
Officer: President Diondre Treakle
Advocacy is the act of public support or recommendation of a particular cause or policy. February is Advocacy Month and our chapters most active month of the year. Our chapter is preparing our students for the annual CDC Competition in March. Along with February being our biggest competition prep month it’s as well Black History Month. Every year Booker T. Washington High School holds a Black History Month Assembly to not only raise the moral of African Americans but to bring unity to all races with in our community. This assembly is a collaboration production of all the clubs and organizations in the school. Our clubs work collectively to ensure the utmost positive production. Our chapters participation with this production consist of diligently composing a systems management for the layout of the assembly. From the establishment of the begin time to the end time, exit route in terms of emergencies, the seating chart, and scheduling of the event. The main purpose of participation is the simple factor of giving back and our contribution to the unity within our community. The state of our current economy heavily influences aspects of the relationship between communities and to partake in the uniting of students, teachers, faculty, and outside guest provides a sense of satisfaction to our chapter. Making a difference in the community contributes a sense of humbleness within the chapter. Advocacy Month is a time of opportunity support and contribute to multiple causes within the community, and our chapter chooses to give back by supporting the process of uniting the community.
