My name is Tommy Pope, and I am a senior at Durango High School. My favorite DECA event is Accounting Applications Series. Besides DECA, I love to run cross country, play piano, and participate in Speech and Debate. Next year, I plan to start my degree in Chemistry. I am a Blue Bell connoisseur and Survivor enthusiast. I always follow the music of Olivia Rodrigo and the smell of smoked brisket. You can catch me either with my dogs, in the mountains, or binging Grey’s Anatomy!
Farewell, Colorado DECA!
Colorado DECA, it has been an absolute honor serving as your Secretary this past year. This opportunity is one I will truly remember forever. I have learned so much from interacting with you all this year. With all of your help, I was truly able to Discover My Diamond. To my fellow state officers, thank you so much for enriching this leadership experience and for the endless laughs. It is hard to believe that my career with Colorado DECA is over. After two years as a state officer, I have built deep friendships, worked on amazing projects, and most importantly, found a family in Colorado DECA. Stay cool Colorado DECA!
