My name is Ainsley DeLockroy and I am a current Senior at Ponderosa High School in Parker Colorado. I have been involved in DECA for the last three years and have throughly enjoyed being a State Officer for District 11 during my senior year. I have seen how DECA can transform students into professional individuals and I am passionate about the connections this club provides. Outside of DECA I love to travel, as I have almost visited all 50 states! I also work a part-time job at a local cookie dough shop within my town. I am excited to take on my next adventure in college studying healthcare polices and business while utilizing all of the skills I have learned from DECA. I can't wait to meet everyone throughout the conference!
Farewell, Colorado DECA!
As I look back at my years in DECA I have had some incredible growth and experiences that I will cherish forever. This club has helped me develop skills that I will be able to utilize throughout the rest of my life and in my future career. I have also had the honor of obtaining some incredible professional friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. Throughout my time as an active DECA member, I have seen how it can prepare students to be future leaders. I am honored that I was able to represent District 11 at the state level and appreciate all the dedication and support DECA gives to all of its members. With this preparation, I am positive that I will be well prepared for my future business career and will look back at my DECA accomplishments with pride. I also feel incredibly honored to be an executive officer within my chapter and an active DECA member for three years. This has been the best experience of my high school career. To everyone who has helped me throughout my DECA journey thank you! I will forever be grateful for this State Officer Team, District 11, and Ponderosa High School.
