DECA meetings will be held once a month from 2:45-4:00 in Mrs. Simmons' room. Through DECA, students will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in class to a valuable real-world setting! During the year, there will be opportunities through DECA to attend leadership conferences and fun events (like Six Flags), participate in community service, sharpen employable skills, become career ready, and participate in DECA competitions at the regional, state (Atlanta, GA), and national level (Anaheim, CA). DECA is an internationally recognized association, and BMS DECA is a great way to learn about DECA before joining DECA at BHS. This year's theme is "Experience the Difference". We would love for you to join the inaugural BMS DECA chapter this school year! Please see Mrs. Simmons or Mrs. Greer if you have any questions!
