Riverton has been my home for my entire life, and DECA has made me feel even more connected to my community. Aside from DECA, I have also dedicated my senior year to Student Council, NHR, RHS Leadership, and the C.A.N. Board. Outside of school, I work as a document specialist at a local accounting firm, Reddon, Koehn & Associates, CPAs, P.C. I have also been appointed the Riverton High School social media correspondent, which has been a great experience. In my free time, you'll find me at the mall or hanging out with family and friends. Technology is my passion; and although I haven't decided on a college yet, I hope to pursue a career pathway in Business and Technology next year. Because of DECA, I already have some experience in this field, and I have more confidence in making decisions about my future.
DECA Mission Moment "Over the past two years, DECA has taugh me how to excel as a professional and a leader.

DECA Mission Moment "Recently I had the opportunity to participate in the FMP Project with a fellow chapter member that allowed us to work closely with a prominent local fashion retailer. Following a meeting with the store's manager regarding our plans for the project, he told us he was very impressed with our knowledge of marketing and of his company as well as our ability to conduct ourselves in a professional business setting. We were offered jobs on the spot! It made me realize and appreciate just how much DECA has given me!"
Kyle Reed, Laramie High School--Vice President of Leadership
I was born and raised in Laramie, a place that has really grown on me. Outside of DECA, my interests include photography, playing/listening to music, and reading suspense novels. As of right now, my plan after high school is to continue my education at the University of Wyoming. It is there that I would like to study marketing at the College of Business. As far as an actual career, I am keeping an open mind as to where to apply that marketing degree since a truly great upside to majoring in business is the limitless options. However, at the moment a marketing management consulting firm sounds like a nice fit; and who knows, maybe even own my own firm one day!
DECA Mission Moment "I wish I had a good DECA Moment to share; however, when I think about my DECA experiences, I just can't seem to pick one out of the stack. DECA has really been a collection of memories for me. From making new friends from around the globe, to fostering new relationships with businesses and feel proud, to more recent times of contagious laughter with my fellow state officers, DECA is truly what you make of it. I couldn't be more thrilled to see what DECA moments this year has in store!"
Beau Brown, Central High School--Vice President of Marketing
I was born in Missouri but Wy"home"ing raised. I love the outdoors and especially camping! I also play tennis! Currently I am interested in pursuing a career as a teacher.
DECA Mission Moment "My favorite memory of DECA so far is my freshman year (2014-2015) when I was able to attend ICDC in Florida. I had such an amazing experience with my local chapter, and I will never forget the connections and friends I made!"
