This donation was made possible due to the overwhelming success of the 1st Annual Mr. BHS Pageant held in February. The chapter also was recognized for achieving PEAK level for their efforts in the DECA Week Advocacy campaign for the fall where chapters were required to perform outreach activities throughout their school and community to promote the guiding principles of DECA: academically prepared, community oriented, professionally responsible, experienced leaders. Finally, Stephen Battye, a BHS junior, was elected to serve as DECA State Vice President of Finance for the upcoming year. Overall, it was an amazing experience for students and teachers alike. Due to their success, the chapter will now prepare for 35 students and the advisors to travel to Salt Lake City April 27-May 2. Qualifying students will compete for a chance to make the national stage and the remaining delegates will attend leadership academies designed to develop the leadership, communication, networking and teambuilding skills they will need for success in their desired careers as well as valuable information they can use to continue to grow and develop an already successful BHS DECA chapter.
