From National DECA President, MorganThompson You should get involved in DECA because it will change your life. Not only do you gain skills that will make you stand out in for any job or position, it gives you amazing experiences you cant find anywhere else. Ive gotten to travel the world with some of the most fun people Ive ever met. None of that would have been possible without DECA. Taking a chance and joining will be the best decision you could possibly make in high school. And in few years from now, when you are the one standing up giving this presentation, you will see why.
