DECA Internationals Success in Atlanta


"As we return from rainy Atlanta, I am proud to report our students competed with poise and enthusiasm," said Rodger Hutley, business and marketing teacher at Little Elm High School. "Every year, I am amazed by the tremendous academic talent from around the world that assembles at the DECA International Career Development Conference."

About 11 LEHS DECA students represented Little Elm ISD during internationals in Atlanta. The following students received excellence awards:

  • Isaac Willis received a certificate for achieving all standards of performance for the Hospitality and Tourism Cluster exam,
  • Dalton Wilcox received a certificate for achieving all standards of performance on the Marketing Exam.  

The Little Elm Chapter of DECA received a medal commemorating the gold re-certification of the school store, "The Lobo Lair", for 2018. "I'd like to recognize the work of Gwendolyn Learo and Dalton Wilcox who served as co-presidents of the store and led the re-certification project team. Gabi Necastro, Amy Lamberson, and Maverick Swenson did a fine job presenting our store's Marketing Information Management plan in the School Based Enterprise competition," shared Hutley.

Four members Andrew Mendoza, Abigail Resendiz De La Cruz, Aimen Shah, and Lucas Roper earned certificates at their leadership academies.

"Finally, I would like to recognize three senior DECA leaders, Hazel Ibarra, Martha Paz and Gwendolyn Learo who competed in the Creative Marketing Project category. Hazel and Martha served as co-presidents this year and have had a tremendous impact on the growth in size and quality of DECA at Little Elm in their four years as members. Gwen is the first Little Elm student who has advanced to ICDC two years in a row in her individual event in over 13 years," Hutley said.
