My Last DECA Banquet!

Wow! It’s hard to believe how quickly time has flied these past 4 years. I mean it when I say that it feels like it’s only been maybe a year at most since I joined DECA, but at the same time it’s become something that I identify with myself. Whenever someone says anything about DECA, it becomes my first instinct to jump in!

To say the least, I’ve shed a lot of very, happy tears over this organization. The people that I’ve met during my time as a DECA member are among my group of lifelong connections, and I am mesmerized by the opportunities I’ve discovered during my membership. However, what I wanted to do today was share our chapter’s banquet.

I am still processing the fact that I’ve been a member of this DECA team for four years now, and I’m tremendously moved by the memories, whether funny or emotional, and I cannot wait to see what Collegiate DECA will have in store.

So one more time while I still have the chance:

GO LT DECA!
