The Muscular Dystrophy Association has announced that the Davies High School DECA Chapter has raised over $10,000 for MDA, which places the Davies club among the top ten chapters in the nation. The accomplishment also qualifies its members to attend the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) being held in Salt Lake City from April 28-30.
The students at the core of the Davies effort are senior Austin Cariveau and juniors Maneesh Apte and Jessica Hanson. The students reached their goal of $10,000 by organizing many activities including a golf tournament, a Davies student vs. staff basketball game, and a school dance.
Many local businesses also supported the activities with sponsorships in exchange for advertising rights at the events. Read the full press release from MDA.
The Davies DECA chapter advisor is Jason Holland.
