Northview High Schools’ Distribtutive Education Club of America (DECA) program received a grant of $6,500 from 100 Women Who Care Clay County.
At their first ever meeting in March 2015, 100 Women Who Care Clay County nominated Brazil Mainstreet, Northview High School’s DECA program, and the Clay County Humane Society. After three great presentations, the women voted for the DECA program to be the first nonprofit program that they fund.
The DECA program consists of 34 Northview High School students who are interested in becoming leaders in careers and education in marketing, finance, hospitality, management, and other business areas. Through their $6.500 grant, the 100 Women Who Care Clay County provided funds for Northview High School DECA students to attend the DECA International Conference in Orlando, Florida. These students met with over 17,000 high school students, teacher-advisors, business professionals, and alumni to demonstrate their college and career readiness.
