DECA club celebrates national week

Beverly Bryant - November 18, 2016 2:26 pm

DECA members at Ponca City High School celebrated National DECA week this week with a variety of activities for their membership and the students at Po-HI.

Each day the students brought more awareness to the organization, its goals,  and its purpose.

DECA helps high school find their future and prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs to be college and career ready.

To help students understand more about entrepreneurship, DECA invited business owner Terron Liles, owner of The Bag Lady Boutique, to speak about the importance of small business ownership, target markets, retail marketing and advertising.  Liles also spoke on the importance of community service, especially in a town the size of Ponca City.

Other events during the week included professional dress day, “When I grow up” day, DECA shirt day, and making treats for school administration as well as baking cookies for children at our local shelters.

DECA’s local adviser is Heather Monks.  For more information about becoming involved in DECA, email [email protected]
