LC DECA students competed at the Texas DECA District 11 Career Development Conference at North Garland last Saturday, setting the record at 23 district champion medals.

“Once I heard my name being called to get my medal, it was a huge exhilarating rush that ran through my body,” senior Khari Jones said. “It was just amazing.”

District winners will compete at the Texas State Career Conference in Dallas February 20 and 22 at the Downtown Sheraton. However, state winners will fly to Atlanta for the DECA International Career Development Conference.

“[Going to state] feels great, but it’s still a competition so I can’t get too comfortable,” senior Tim Gove said. “I still have to prepare for state, so I can move onto the international competition.”
