If you happen to see the following students (Aidan O’Hara, Mia Adams, Angelynna Pyeatt) please recognize them for their efforts in earning HHS DECA’s Tiger Balloons a Gold Certification distinction from the National DECA’s School Based Enterprise (SBE) Competition. To my knowledge they are the first chapter in the history of the State of South Dakota to earn this distinction. Of the 4,500 DECA Chapters throughout the World only 483 SBE’s earned this honor for the past school year. Because of the efforts from the students in completing a 25 page business plan and starting up the Tiger Balloon’s School Store, these students have qualified to attend the School Based Enterprise Academy in Orlando this Spring at the International Career Development Conference (ICDC), where they will learn best practices from other SBE’s and industry professionals in retail, and also present their SBE and compete against other schools from across the world.
