Our fellow Class of 1978 Alumni, Kitti Bowers, has asked for the support of our class. Each donation supports one deserving CPHS DECA student. A check will be presented at the reunion from our class.
Please read her letter below and you can donate at the bottom of this page!
Greetings Clover Park Classmates,
A lot has changed in the last 40 years! Did you know that eighty percent of students at CPHS are on free and reduced lunch? Four years ago, I returned to CPHS to teach marketing, reactivate our DECA chapter and open a student store. We finally opened our store this year. It’s been a great opportunity for my students to get “hands on” work experience and learn how to run a business.
Due to financial hardship my students don’t have the money to pay for their DECA dues and related expenses. I believe every student should be allowed to participate in DECA regardless of income. My students often tell me how DECA changed their life. Please consider contributing to a students’ success by sponsoring their DECA membership.
DECA is a co-curricular student leadership organization that prepares emerging student leaders and entrepreneurs in the areas of marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Students have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the marketing classroom through participation in DECA leadership, service projects and competitive events. For more information: www.wadeca.org
The students in my classes today are the future leaders of tomorrow, and they need your financial assistance to realize their full potential. Your donation will be going to a great cause and your support is very appreciated! Please let me know if you have any questions.
Kitti Bowers Wheeler, DECA Advisor
