WHS DECA Supports the Alzheimer's Association

WHS DECA Supports the Alzheimer's Association
November 2010 - WHS DECA continued their commitment to helping the Alzheimer’s Association find a cure.  Recently, WHS DECA’s sponsors Buck Nelson and Maryellen Coburn educated their students about the disease and the students decided to act.  DECA President Michael Udave created paper elephants, the Alzheimer’s Association’s mascot, to sell for $1 on campus and throughout the community.  Over 125 students participated in selling the elephants and raised over $800.  The 2 week effort culminated when members of the WHS DECA program walked in the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk in Sun City on October 23rd.  On Saturday, November 13, members of the WHS DECA program will be volunteering at the State’s largest Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk in downtown Phoenix.

WHS DECA is a co-curricular club that prepares emerging entrepreneurs in leadership development, community service learning, and school service based around marketing, finance, and hospitality education.

Below are pictures of DECA with the paper elephants and at the Memory Walk.
