Dougherty Valley DECA Starts Off Year Strong!

By Anika Sumush
After an amazing #SummerofDECA, the time to get started is finally here! With competition season just a few short months away, DVHS DECA began the year by getting to know their youngest competitors-to-be.
Chapter officers spoke to the incoming freshmen as they toured the school, with presentations, ICDC pins, and DECA glass to inspire new competitors. Freshman orientation is the perfect time to discover motivated members as soon as possible and introduce them to the community and opportunities DECA has to provide. But don’t stop there! Getting an early start on preparations is the key to success not only as a chapter, but in competition. Bring your officers and members together, because it is going to be an incredible year, and you want to be #ReadyForIt.
