SC DECA State officers 2019-2020



 Hey!!! My name is Jeymerson Lopez, I'm 17 and a senior at River Bluff High School. Two of my biggest passions are Theater and Business and I'm grateful I get to attend a school where I can pursue both. Within a year of joining the RBHS DECA I became a part of the Leadership Team for my chapter and then less than a year after that I became the SC DECA President. Becoming The SC DECA President has truly been an honor which I am beyond grateful for. I could not be more excited to work with my fellow state officer team members to make this year the best year. DECA has meant so much to me these past couple of years and I've met so many amazing people. DECA will be a part of my life I will look back on in the future and smile. Follow me on my Instagram @scdeca_jeymerson if you haven't already and DM me your ideas/suggestions and questions.
