Timber Creek High School DECA Earns Chapter Honors
Fort Worth, Texas – Timber Creek High School DECA in Fort Worth, Texas was recently awarded the Membership Campaign Award and Community Service Campaign Award for the 2022-2023 school year. The results were announced on decadirect.org.
Each year, DECA recognizes leading chapters that have built strong local programs focused on serving an exceptional number of members, advisors, alumni, and business partners. These chapters and individuals dedicate their year to academic and career preparation, community service projects, membership recruitment, school outreach activities and other DECA-related endeavors. The chapter’s advisor and student leaders have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to DECA.
DECA’s membership campaign is designed to help chapters grow by making the DECA experience available to more student members, keeping alumni involved and engaging professional members such as administrators, teachers, parents, and business partners.
In DECA’s community service campaign, chapters held a community service activity, engaged at least 75% of its members, and created at least one form of publicity or promotion.
“TCHS-DECA has worked hard to grow the program we went from 17 members last year to 64 members this year, this is an awesome accomplishment. I commend our members for their hard work,” said Peggy Strong-Johnson.
Of the 3,200 DECA chapters, only 637 chapters earned recognition in DECA’s chapter campaigns and only 1,038 chapters earned recognition in DECA’s membership campaign.
The DECA chapter advisor at Timber Creek High School is Peggy Strong-Johnson.
