The Emerging Leader Honor Award recognizes members who have been involved at the local, chartered association and DECA Inc. levels. These members are graduating seniors who have maintained at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average, have completed at least one course in marketing, business management and administration, entrepreneurship, finance or hospitality and tourism, and have participated in a variety of activities that helped them to become a community-oriented, professionally responsible and experienced leader.
"Receiving the Emerging Leader Honor Award is special for my students at Valley Forge because we are a one-year program completing what two-, three-, and four-year programs complete including industry credentials, end of the year assessments, 23 college credits, community service, DECA competitions, Believe in Ohio competitions, Teen Pitches, and Fuel Up to Play 60 activities," expressed Carolyn Holt Balis, Valley Forge High School DECA teacher.
