Advisor Spotlight! Aaron Rayburn, North Medford

Aaron Rayburn, otherwise known as “RayBald” or “Mr. Clean”, has been a DECA advisor at North Medford High School for thirteen years.  Mr. Rayburn was born and raised in Medford, Oregon, where he attended North Medford High School.  After graduation, Mr. Rayburn studied at Southern Oregon University, receiving a degree in business, and later returning to the university for a Masters in Education.

During his thirteen years as a DECA advisor, he sent several students to ICDC.  Many of his students have become International finalists, one of which took first place at Internationals.  “I want to help all of my students achieve their goals and dreams,” says Mr. Rayburn. “The relationships I’ve built with students are the best part about being a DECA advisor!  Our district is special because all of the chapters work so closely together. The other advisors within District Three have become good friends of mine.” The state officers of Oregon DECA would like to thank Mr. Rayburn for all of his hard work and dedication as an advisor.
