My Last DECA Banquet!

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.

So one more time while I still have the chance:
