Superintendent Paul Zinni, King Philip DECA Marketing Coordinator James Dow and DECA Vice President of Marketing Brooke Noonan are pleased to announce that King Philip Regional High School’s DECA chapter has had a very busy start to the 2022-23 school year.
To kick off the school year, the King Philip chapter officers and class representatives attended the Fall State Conference at Bentley University on Oct. 26. At the conference, they listened to an inspirational speech from the founder of the app “Fetch,” Wes Schroll. They also attended different workshops throughout the day and enjoyed lunch with other DECA chapters in the state.
On Nov. 15, the KP DECA officers and class representatives attended DECA Day at Beacon Hill in Boston. As part of DECA Day, KP students visited the Massachusetts State House and listened to inspirational speeches from State Rep. Sean Dooley and Sen. Rebecca Rausch. Rep. Dooley took DECA members on a tour of the State House, and Sen. Raush awarded KP DECA members with a Certificate of Achievement.
Then, on Dec. 7, KP DECA held its annual breakfast during which new DECA members were inducted into the chapter. The team listened to the new co-presidents, seniors Kayla Simas and Phil Harmon, speak about the year ahead. KP DECA alumna Class of 2018 Tori Desmond also attended the breakfast as the keynote speaker and spoke about the impact DECA had on her and her career.
The team also enjoyed a night out at the TD Garden for DECA Celtics night on Friday, Dec. 9, which was a great bonding experience for all attendees.
“We have had a very successful start to our school year with so many excellent opportunities for our KP DECA members,” Dow said. “We are very excited for the rest of the year and to see what our students can achieve.”
