DECA Students Elected to State Office

Great news from the 2011 Missouri DECA Fall Leadership and Officer Election Conference at the Lodge of Four Seasons at Lake Ozark!  Two Business Management and Ownership students won state offices--Michael Richardson as president and Sam Wright as secretary. Traditionally, larger districts dominate the elections, and with Columbia being the smallest in the state, DECA sponsor Scott Fuenfhausen called the double win a "monumental achievement."

2011-2012 DECA State Officers.  Hickman and CACC seniors Sam
Wright on the far left and Michael Richardson on the far right.
The two Hickman seniors ran against a total of 24 other state officer candidates for the honor of heading up the DECA State Action Team for the 2011-2012 school year. They had to perform at high levels in three areas: Marketing/DECA Examination, Screening & Nomination Committee interviews and a general election comprised of more than 500 student voting delegates from DECA chapters in Missouri.  As the first Hickman officers in over ten years, it is quite the accomplishment!
