We had a great year!

This year we saw growth in membership and enjoyed a year of great experiences.

Highlights from previous school years:

  • Visited Samford University and observed a sports marketing class.
  • Attended the Titan Learning Labs at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tn.
  • Attended the Joint Leadership Development Conference at the BJCC.
  • Had 16 competitors participating at the State DECA Conference and Competition in Birmingham, Al.
  • Attended the Honda Gear-Up Your Career Day at Barber’s Park in Leeds, AL. Students were able to learn about various career options and then watch the Indy Gran Prix 500.
  • We had two winners at the State DECA Competition that advanced to the International competition (ICDC) in Orlando, Fl. Haley James received a DECA Award of Excellence.
  • GCHS’s DECA club also raised money for MDA and Smile-A-Mile. We also completed two other civic projects on the GCHS campus.

We are looking forward to another great year and will announce the 2019-20 officers and information soon!
