From staff reports

DECA students from Eastern Washington competed and presented projects in the state competition in March and qualified for the national competition at the International Career Development Conference held in Orlando, Florida, at the end of April.

Elections and awards were also announced.

The newly elected Area 11 president is Andre Ramsey of Rogers High School.

Harley Rand and Lily Cook, both of Shadle Park High School, were recipients of the Emerging Leader Honor Award. Over 400 senior DECA members are annually recognized for this award across the nation for representing DECA in the community while excelling in studying business- and finance-related courses and maintaining a cumulative 3.2 GPA.
