Congratulations to junior Carrington Tyson, who has been selected as a North Carolina DECA Diamond Student of the Month. Chatham Charter DECA advisor Ashley Wood nominated Tyson because of her hard work and dedication to the chapter. Tyson is also a chapter officer.

DECA is an association of marketing students that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools around the globe. 

"North Carolina DECA is excited to recognize these outstanding members and all that they do for the program," commented Pamela O'Brien, North Carolina DECA Advisor.

“Carrington has stepped up to the plate by organizing our first annual holiday bazaar. She has stepped out of her comfort zone contacting vendors, attending street fairs seeking vendors, and creating various advertisements to promote the event. Carrington has also encouraged others to join DECA, which has led to an increased membership this year. She is very passionate about DECA and wants everyone around her to know the benefits of DECA," explained Wood.
