Lakeridge, Southridge and Sprague Chapter Visits

On Tuesday, October 23, State President, Siddharth Moghe visited Lakeridge High School’s brand new chapter! Here at this visit, he met with new members and explained what the organization stands for and its impact today. The chapter is already in full swing, and is in the process of electing its first chapter officers! We are proud to have Lakeridge as yet another strong Oregon DECA chapter, and will see their presence at the State Conference in Februrary!

On Thursday, November 1, District I Vice President, Katie Divinets, Publicity Director, Bodie Crist, and Cascade’s Mr. Reinhardt visited the new Portland area chapter of Southridge. Here the three helped chapter members start the year right with information on DECA and competition. We look forward to seeing Southridge at the State Career Development Conference!

On November 8, Secretary/Treasurer Arjun Kandaswamy, and State President Siddharth Moghe visited Sprague High School’s DECA chapter. The officers gave Sprague an update on the membership campaigns that Sprague could incorporate to make their chapter even stronger, and be rewarded at SCDC and ICDC.

At this chapter visit, the Sprague chapter officers ran through a sample role play for their members and gave competitive tips along the way. Sprague also participated in the District Skills competition to hone their skills before the State Conference. Sid and Arjun had a fantastic time meeting with Sprague, and their new advisor, Ms. Pollard!
