Dr. Davis Scholarship Receives $30,000 from NAB

DECA's National Advisory Board (NAB) Chairman, Roger Glenn, senior vice president of human resources for Gordmans, announced that the NAB has raised over $30,000, to date, for the Dr. Edward L. Davis Scholarship Fund.

Glenn made this announcement at the DECA National Advisory Board annual meeting in Atlanta, Ga., on October 24, 2013. The NAB’s fundraising goal had been $25,000, but the door is still open for contributions.

“Ed’s number-one priority has always been to provide opportunity and scholarships for young people, so a named scholarship, supported by everyone his work has touched, is an absolutely fitting tribute to his record of accomplishment and personal legacy,” said Jim Brock, president of the DECA Inc., Board of Directors.  

The first award will be presented at the 2014 DECA International Career Development Conference, in Atlanta, Ga. Please contact John Fistolera to make your contribution.

DECA's scholarship program for the 2013-2014 school year is now open and accepting applications. The deadline to submit applications is January 17, 2014. DECA's scholarship program provides over $300,000 in scholarships at ICDC each year, many of which come from DECA’s corporate partners.
