Farewell, Colorado DECA!

The State DECA Conference is finally here! I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me along this journey. I am so grateful to be a part of such a fantastic organization and to have worked alongside an incredible and talented State Officer Team. You all are strong leaders and I have learned so much from each of you.

Mom, Dad, and Molly, you have been such incredible supporters throughout the process of becoming and being a State Officer. You have inspired me to be the best version of myself, and have been such amazing role models. Thank you for everything, I love you so much.

Thomas Jefferson High School DECA and Mr. Nicolo, thank you so much for encouraging me to go after my goals and helping me achieve them. Thank you all for your unconditional support and lifelong friendships!

CO DECA DISTRICT THREE, it has been such an honor to represent such a phenomenal group of DECA students. Your collective passion and determination for DECA success is what motivated me to “Maximize my Momentum” as a State Officer! Thank YOU all for being an impressive force.

Forever thankful for the entire Colorado DECA Family!
