The World of Marketing

Marketing, money management and public speaking are all useful skills to have. Club president Sara Babcock and Marketing teacher Sara Marshall are available to help you master those skills through their club, DECA.

The club teaches students how to dress for a professional business event, manage money, be competitive and market a wide variety of products and services. Although the organization met Aug. 26 in room 210, it is not too late to sign up. The next meeting is at 7:10 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 2.

In addition to teaching new skills, students will have the opportunity to meet new friends. DECA competes against other schools locally, regionally and nationally in events such as roleplaying, advertising and team decision making. Qualifying for the state tournament requires only that students compete in two preliminary events. Only two people attended the first DECA meeting. Babcock hopes to see more students attend next week.
