THS DECA Program Celebrates Competitive Season

With the school year concluded, the Tullahoma High School Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) celebrated the conclusion of a stellar competitive season.

Abby Lynch, Olivia Murphy and Emma Bell represented Tullahoma at the DECA International Conference in Atlanta last month. The THS sophomores were three of the 17,000 students, advisors and industry leaders who attended the competition and leadership events. Prior to the international conference, Lynch, Murphy and Bell had placed highly at state. Lynch took home second in Human Resources, Murphy had a second-place effort in Restaurant Management and Bell finished fifth in Entrepreneurship.

“Under the leadership of Sharon Woodard, the THS DECA program has become well known throughout the state for developing some of the best young leaders in the fields of marketing, finance and hospitality,” said THS Principal Jason Quick. “This year’s group was no exception as the team did exceptionally well in the state competition, and we had three that went to the international competition in Atlanta. Olivia, Emma, and Abby were superb and represented our school and district well.”

Tullahoma had several students place at the district level and qualify for the state competition. Below is a list of those participants from THS.
