    President:  Leslie Powers


    Hi! My name is Leslie Powers and I am proud to announce that I will serve as your 2020-2021 StateHigh DECA President! This year will be my fourth and final year in DECA as I am now a senior, however, it will also be my third year serving on the officer team. During my time as an officer, I had the pleasure of holding the Director of Fundraising and Vice President of Hospitality positions. Outside of DECA you can find me at one of my two jobs either at the pool or working in the CEEL Program! On top of that, I also enjoy playing lacrosse and working out on my own time with my friends or my mom. While DECA has given me many great opportunities, the biggest skill I have learned is how to be confident not only in my personality but also when speaking publicly. I am so excited to work with you all this year and know that it will be the best year yet! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at lap19@scasd.org.
