CLEARFIELD — Two Clearfield County Career and Technology Center DECA members have been selected to attend a leadership academy at the 2013 DECA International Career and Development Conference in Anaheim, CA from April 23-April 28.
Marcus Stephenson, Curwensville, will be attending the Senior Management Institute (SMI). The SMI engages high school seniors in activities designed to prepare them to transition from high school to college and the business world. Participants will develop teamwork, group dynamics and decision-making skills and a mission statement. A highlight of this institute is the Executive Mentor Program where students interact in small groups with high-profile executives from DECA’s National Advisory Board and other top companies.
Kilee Hanes, also from Curwensville, will be attending the Chapter Management Academy (CMA). The CMA covers all of the essentials for a successful DECA year at the chapter level. Chapter leaders will learn how to lead productive meetings and develop a comprehensive program of work including social activities, community service and fundraising.
Students are currently raising funds for the trip. Any businesses or individuals who are interested in donating to the students’ trip should contact advisor Lauren Hopkins at 814-765-5308 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
