Congratulations are in order for Elisa Zhang ('20) who was recently announced as the new California DECA State President for 2019-2020 school year!

When asked about her role next year, Elisa said, “I'm extremely excited and humbled to represent all of California DECA this coming year. As a high school student, it's not every day that I get the chance to serve thousands of business-oriented students. I've been a DECA member for three years now, and this organization has provided me with invaluable skills, friendships, and opportunities which have truly changed my life. I can't wait for the opportunity to give back to such an incredible organization. I look forward to helping more students be impacted by this organization, and this will definitely be an experience I'll never forget.”
