Vista Grande High School DECA was recently awarded an Achievement Level recognition in the 2021-2022 DECA Membership Campaign. The results were announced on decadirect.org.
Each year, DECA recognizes leading chapters that have built strong local programs focused on serving an exceptional number of members, advisors, alumni, and business partners. These chapters and individuals dedicate their year to academic and career preparation, community service projects, membership recruitment, school outreach activities, and other DECA-related endeavors. The chapter’s advisor and student leaders have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to DECA.
DECA’s membership campaign is designed to help chapters grow by making the DECA experience available to more student members, keeping alumni involved, and engaging professional members such as administrators, teachers, parents, and business partners.
“It is very exciting to see our DECA Program growing and preparing our students for success now and in the future,” said Lisa Horsley, DECA Advisor for Vista Grande High School.
Of the 3,000 DECA chapters, only 450 chapters earned recognition in DECA’s chapter campaigns and only 775 chapters earned recognition in DECA’s membership campaign.
The Vista Grande DECA Chapter Officer Team is comprised of: Mia Mooring (Chapter President), Justyce Martinez (Chapter Vice President), Paul Sanchez (Vice President of Finance), Adrian Rodriguez and Aceton McGuire (Co-Vice Presidents of Marketing), Jose Granados (Vice President of Communications/Hospitality), and Bryan Gordon (Vice President of Career Development & Competition). They are advised by Lisa Horsley, CTE Teacher.
