Pacific High School junior and Missouri District 8 DECA vice president Alyssa Crum attended a legislative breakfast Jan. 24 at the state capitol.

Crum and the entire DECA action team met with state representatives to talk about the importance of Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSO).

All of the Missouri State DECA action team attended the session and were recognized on the House floor during the opening session.

“This experience was a great opportunity for our DECA state action team to talk with representatives individually,” said Nancy Pfeiffer, DECA sponsor.

“It let legislators hear first hand how a high school organization such as DECA can have an impact on a student in preparing for college and careers through real life role plays, presentations and travel,” said Pfeiffer.
