Marketing Student of the Month
 

Congratulation to Piper Wilkie on being selected the August Student of the Month!  Piper started preparing for this DECA season last May, and never lost steam. She spent countless hours over the summer working on fall events, painting over parking spaces, and organizing competition materials. It is through her efforts that we are able to introduce many new ideas this year, and expand on our efforts from previous years. She always has a positive attitude and is willing to help students both in and out of class time.
