Outstanding students in our community are in need of sponsors to fund their trip to compete in Atlanta, Georgia in the International Career Development Conference.

 DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.

Letter from RRHS DECA Chapter

Future RRHS DECA Partners,

The Rio Rancho High School DECA Chapter will be embarking on a trip to Atlanta, Georgia this April to compete at the International Career Development Conference (ICDC). With forty members qualifying at state competition, our chapter was one of the top performing schools in the state. This success has also put us in need of financial assistance.

Due to an unfortunate medical occurrence, our advisor Mr. Henderson, will be unable to attend the conference with us. This has left us without our leader and also means we need to cover the cost of additional staff to chaperone the trip.

Our chapter members have been working tirelessly year-round to prepare for this competition. From reaching out to community business leaders for presentation advice to spending hours each week studying material, qualifiers are anxious to further their business knowledge and experience by attending ICDC.

During the trip, members will compete against and network with thousands of other DECA students from across the globe. This trip provides students the ability to better themselves as people, community members, and future business leaders.

How you can help

Our officer team and chapter are doing everything to ensure that as many students will be able to attend as possible and that their financial burden will be manageable. This is why we are asking for your assistance.

  • Become a RRHS Chapter Partner at either the Silver ($100), Gold ($300) or Diamond ($500) level.
  • Donate to an individual RRHS DECA student or team.

In return for your generosity, your business will be recognized as a RRHS Partner on the ICDC tee shirt that each of the RRHS DECA competitors will wear.

Any business partnering at the Diamond level can opt to receive our marketing services as we will promote your business on our RRHS DECA website. We will also distribute your promotional offers/information on our campus through the end of the year.

Thank you for your consideration and generous support.

Best regards,
