King Philip DECA Welcomes Alumni at Open House
WRENTHAM — King Philip DECA Vice President of Marketing Emma Daly would like to provide an update on the high school’s business club:
On Dec. 21, King Philip DECA held its annual Round Table event, one that the students look forward to every year.
KP DECA alumni returned to share the impact DECA has had on their lives. Chapter officers, state officers, international champions and vital DECA members have all left their mark on the King Philip DECA community. Students from 2016 and onward have become the inspirational force driving our current chapter members to success.
During the day, all DECA classes were exposed to the way DECA had furthered the alumni’s career and college experience. DECA has taught these individuals the life skills that they can carry on and share with everyone they meet and partner with.
Time management and communication skills are some skills on the very long lost of abilities that they have gained and still use in their everyday lives.
