On Wednesday November 15, the King Philip DECA chapter officers and DECA Inc. high school division president, Jaron May, went to the State House in Boston, Mass., to participate in the annual DECA on the Hill ceremony.

State legislators, Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito, Massachusetts DECA officers and Jaron May, provided the group of DECA members and advisors with advice and commended the program as a whole.

Representative Shawn Dooley kindly recognized the King Philip DECA chapter and gave the chapter citations from the State Senate and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in which president Jeff Yatsuhashi received for the chapter.

The King Philip officers interacted with other Massachusetts DECA members and experienced different areas of the State house including the Senate chamber and the House of Representatives chamber.

DECA on the Hill was an exciting opportunity and reinstated the purpose of the DECA program-  prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.
