Farewell, Colorado DECA!

Colorado DECA,

It has been a great honor to serve as your District 4 State Representative this year. Our goal was to unify our community once again after the pandemic, and we have accomplished that! I am proud of the enthusiasm, determination, and hard work DECA members have given this year through chapter events, competitive events, as well as through your fundraising efforts for the 10/10/10 campaign. Through the 10/10/10 campaign, we were not only able to raise over $10,000 for Mental Health Colorado, but we also exceeded our goal in raising 10,000 pounds of food, as well as raising $10,000. That is no small feat and I would like to thank YOU for your hard work and contributions!

As my term as a State Officer comes to a close, I am reflecting on my last three years as a DECA member. I started out as a DECA member in my sophomore year. I never imagined I would end my high school career serving the entire state of Colorado as a State Officer. What I have learned in my three years in DECA is to never give up! It doesn’t matter how you start, it matters how you finish! I learned to build the courage needed to keep striving to make my visions turn into a reality.

I would like to thank Mrs. Young, Mrs. Mossman, Mr. Peer, DECA District 4 schools, and all Colorado DECA members for trusting me to help lead this amazing organization. To Mr. Haar, Mr. Konrad, Mr. Ladwig, Mr. Seiler, and all of Valor DECA, I can’t thank you enough for your support, guidance, and inspiration that you have given me the last three years. I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish all that I did without you. I have learned a lot and promise to take what I have learned and share it with the world!

Sincerely,

Anthony Curcio
