Purpose -- Student Leadership Development

Apollo DECA is dedicated to serious business and marketing students who want to add to their resumes and life experiences. Students gain leadership skills and personal growth through conferences, travel, and competition. We train for success on the job and in future college courses. Students learn business, finance, hospitality, marketing, technology, and interpersonal skills needed to compete in today's market.

Our Hawks also run a successful school store, plan meaningful activities, and develop as leaders with cashiering and supervisory experience built into their classes. Our members earned $10,000 in local scholarship dollars last year thanks to our profitable school store employees and student managers. Our Professional Sales and Marketing course is also a dual credit college course worth 3 transferable credits towards any degree at any college or university.

Apollo DECA has qualified and competed at the national level for the past 9 years. We have grown many district and state champions throughout the last 13 years.
