Today BBRC will be hosting some of the local high school DECA students ahead of their state championships, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Friday March 6th. They will be making their presentations to us and we in turn can give them constructive feedback to assist them in perfecting their presentations.

DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) is an association that encourages the development of business and leadership skills through academic conferences and competitions.

BBRC financial support will be instrumental in getting 18 students from the (5) Bellevue high schools to the State competition where they will have the opportunity to qualify for the International State Career Development Conference, to be held in Nashville TN on the  29th April thru May 2nd 2020. Here is the promotional video for the DECA 2020 program which is both exciting and impactful.  Watch this video –
