DECA rocks internationals

By Tyler Holbert

Thirteen students from Heritage DECA went to Nationals in Salt Lake City, UT. There were a total of 15,000 high school students from around the nation. DECA represented Heritage well by being some of the most professional members in attendance.

Juniors Samantha Ballard and Emily McCoy placed third in the Chapter Award presentation in which they presented a ninety page scrapbook of one year of work for DECA, which has very strict requirements.

Seniors Fletcher Stenlund, Hannah Terry, and Michael Youngs received forth in Public Relation for the S.K.I.D. presentation out of 145 teams and were recognized as the best in the nation for the S.K.I.D. project.

“This international was something I’ll never forget, something I am beyond proud of and something these for years of hard work have prepared me for,” said Terry. “Live life to help make the right decisions for yourself and to support others,” said Stenlund.
