Karson Chandler

My name is Karson Chandler and I’m the Region 3 VP of Public Relations. I’m a sophomore at Breckinridge County High School. When I’m not busy with chapter DECA activities I always have a guitar in my hand. I’m ether playing by myself, jamming at the Rough River Dam State Lodge, or playing at church. I also love NASCAR. I am known as the “Walking Encyclopedia” when it comes to everything from the Cars, what line to run at the track, or knowing everything about each race from the last 40 years. I hope everyone is ready to experience the difference. Y’all have a great year!!!
