The recent DECA Banquet was a huge success.
The students planned, organized, coordinated and set up for this spectacular end-of-the-year celebration of spectacular marketing students.
The banquet began with a speech from Truman Marketing Teacher Carly Lundgren, followed buy Vice President Sara Sherazi leading us in the DECA creed and followed by her speech.
Then President Amario Massey gave a speech. Individual awards followed, where students received honors for top scores for competitions; student of the months; academic achievement for the marketing class; vocational completion certificates; classroom awards; mock elections; and the crowning of the King and Queen.
Over 10 different students presented and gave speeches and the banquet ended with Amario Massey being awarded student of the year; Junaid Syed being awarded employee of the year; and Sara Sherazi being named the 2017-2018 DECA president.
Elections will be held in September for the other executive board positions.
Mrs. Amy Wagel took over 240 pictures from our banquet making sure to include each student that won something as well. Those are on her facebook page called zumbaparty.us If anyone would like to see more or tag themselves in those photos if they know their kid is in any of them.
It has been an amazing year and I am so blessed and honored to have had our most successful group of marketing students to date. I will miss the seniors so much and look forward to those underclassman getting a chance to take on their roles next year.
