Kentucky DECA Student Leaders

Kentucky DECA State and Regional Officers recently participated in activities designed to enhance their leadership, communication, project management, and teamwork abilities.  Students from around the state of Kentucky took part in activities including the Low Rope Challenge Course at Eastern Kentucky University, project management training, and planning sessions for the year ahead.  Participating students included State Officers Brooklyn Williams (Graves Co.), Lauren Worley (Pulaski Co.), Parker Sellers (Pulaski Co.), Ivey Redd (Trigg Co.), and Lilly P’pool (Trigg Co.) and Regional Officers Savanah Garnett (Trigg Co.), Lucas Beebe (John Hardin HS), Aubrey Morse (Trigg Co.), Ellie Youngblood (Trigg Co.), Aiden Corder (Somerset HS), Max Yeast (Somerset HS), Taylor Smith (Breckinridge Co.), Jenna Visingardi (Trigg Co.), and Leo Gogol (Scott Co.). 

 

Brooklyn Williams shared the value she found in attending, “The 2021 Kentucky DECA Summer Camp was such a pleasure to attend! There were many valuable lessons and strategies taught to help prepare for the upcoming school year. My personal favorite activity was participating in the Challenge Course at EKU. It was the first time our teen leaders had been able to meet in person; and, we were able to grow together as a team by helping each other through the obstacles.”

 

Kentucky DECA is planning activities for the 21-22 school year that will focus on :

*fundraising for organizations that support research for medical conditions

*collaborating with local small businesses in their marketing efforts

*maximizing our members’ educational opportunities by planning and implementing local community service projects.
