HELLO FLORIDA DECA!!!
Now over to Wellington, Florida for the next Chapter Spotlight. This month, I am putting the spotlight on Wellington High School DECA!!
Wellington DECA currently has over 300 members, 325 to be exact! Last year,
Wellington DECA qualified 82 members to the Florida DECA annual Career Development Conference and 31 members qualify to ICDC in Nashville, TN. Recently, in 2013, not only did Wellington DECA reach the 200 club, but the chapter had an International winner. Wellington High School offers classes in the marketing program such as Marketing Essentials, Digital Information Technology, Marketing Applications, AICE Travel and Tourism, and AICE Business Studies.
Mr. Wilkinson, one of the Wellington Chapter Advisors, was an International winner when he attended Wellington High School and is now a Wellington DECA advisor, as well as holds a seat on the Florida DECA Board of Advisors.
Wellington DECA is unique because the chapter utilizes a Student Advisory Board rather than a officer team for chapter leadership. Board Chairwoman, Nicole Kraemer, says that this form of leadership has been very successful for the chapter since put into place two years ago. Shoutout to Wellington DECA for all their success, keep up the amazing work and Own Your Future!!!
