What is DECA you may ask? DECA  is a student organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management in high schools and colleges. Although you don’t need to be in a business class it can be helpful for some of the events. Senior Jack Vettel says he has had an amazing experience with DECA he has been a 3-year member and he says he loves every second of it! He says even if you are on the fence about joining do it because it is worth it and you won’t regret it.
