EXPERIENCE DESERT VIEW DECA
OUR CHAPTER: DESERT VIEW DECA
Desert View DECA has been a business organization at Desert View High School for over 20 years. Students in the program participate in various community and outreach activities. Our students compete at the local, state, and national levels. We have had students will competition awards at all three levels DECA offers. Several members have been given scholarships and other prizes for their accomplishments. Students have received various awards and recognitions such as the Dorothy O. Finley Outstanding Teen Citizen Award, Kino Rotary Character Award, Congressional Honors, and have become US Presidential Scholar nominees in CTE. Upon graduation we have had many students go on to ranked post-secondary business programs, moved on to management careers, and started their own businesses.
