Inaugural DECA season a success

Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board is happy to welcome another established DECA chapter to the fold after a very successful first year. 

The Demonstrating Excellence, Celebrating Achievement organization (DECA) chapter was founded this past fall by the school’s business teacher Mrs. Goggins, and in its first year of existence the St. Anne’s chapter sent 16 students to Toronto for the 40th DECA provincial championships. The program empowers members to lead through goal setting, cooperation, real world application and competition by combining classroom instruction with applied learning in a business setting.

“As someone who wants to pursue business as a career, I found my involvement in DECA very enlightening,” said Zachary Stacey, a St. Anne’s student.  “I feel more confident knowing I can apply the strategies I learned when networking with others in my future endeavours.” 

With over 15,000 members and more than 300 chapters around the world, DECA helps young business students learn how to network and build connections to facilitate their future business or entrepreneurship aspirations. 

After completing their first year as part of the organization, the St. Anne’s DECA chapter is now eligible to compete regionally, provincially and potentially qualify for future DECA world championships.
