Coral Glades DECA in the Spotlight
HELLO FLORIDA DECA!!
AND THE CHAPTER SPOTLIGHT GOES TO……. CORAL GLADES HIGH SCHOOL DECA in Coral Springs Florida!
The Coral Glades DECA Chapter is run by Advisors Mr. Goldfinger, Mrs. Lopez, and their 13 chapter officers. The school offers programs such as Academy of Finance and Marketing. The Academy of Finance program consists of Finance & Business Technology, Accounting, Financial Operations, and Financial Planning, while the Marketing program is made up of Marketing Essentials, Marketing Applications, Marketing Management and Business Ownership, and they looking to expand their programs and add additional unique courses to encourage more growth and success in the chapter.
Coral Glades DECA has a membership of 244 members. Out of 244, they had 90 travel to CDC and 43 winners. The chapter will be taking 41 students to ICDC in Nashville, TN, 40 competitors and 1 voting delegate. These are record breaking numbers for Glades DECA.
How did they do it? Each year Coral Glades completes each of the six chapter projects to help the students, school, and community excel, no matter the amount of work it takes. Also to help prepare the students for competition there are events such as “Lock-in”, where the student competitors come one night after school and spend hours preparing, practicing, and working on their competitive events. They also learn things such as how to professional dress during this time.
The chapter takes pride in all the events such as “Sync or Swim”, “Battle of the Bands” and other fundraisers and activities that motivate members and bring success by making everyone feel like a part of the Coral Glades DECA family, even the school principle who traveled to Orlando this past March to support the Coral Glades DECA chapter.
Congratulations to all of Coral Glades High School DECA on the success of the chapter, as well as those who will be competing soon at ICDC!
Stay cool Florida DECA :-)
