Hello Wyoming DECA! My name is Xiner Luo, and I am so excited to be serving as your President for the 2021-2022 school year! This is my fourth year in DECA and my second year serving as a state officer. In DECA, I compete in Business Finance, but I also enjoy events in Hospitality and Tourism. After all these years, my favorite DECA memories include hanging out with my chapter at state, ICDC in Orlando, Florida, and meeting other talented DECA members at various conferences in and out of state. Outside of DECA, I like to play violin, read a good book, or even write my own. DECA is really a great organization that gives high schoolers, not only the skills, but the confidence to tackle whatever the future brings. With that being said, I look forward to working with my state officer team to make this year the best that it has ever been!
"Before high school, I heard about a business organization called DECA. It piqued my interest because I wanted to learn more about business concepts and compete at regional and international competitions. After joining my freshman year, DECA allowed me to meet the most fun, intelligent leaders throughout my school. My first competition put wind in my sails and only grew my love for this organization. I went on to serve as my chapter’s president during my sophomore year. DECA has been such a huge part of my life throughout high school and has allowed me to meet some of my closest friends as well as develop my professional skills. I am so grateful that I decided to join DECA."

My name is Dusty Lick and I am a Senior from Cheyenne South High School. This is my 4th year as a DECA member and I am extremely grateful for all it has offered me. I have met so many great people and had a chance to experience so much. This is my second year as a Wyoming State Officer and my second year as my chapters President. I am super excited to work with you all this year to help make Wyoming DECA into a better place! Thank you! :)
My name is Sydney O’Brien and I’ve been part of the East High DECA chapter since my freshman year. Looking back as a senior, joining DECA has been one of the best decisions I have made in high school. I’ve met amazing people from around the state and even around the country at ICDC that I never would’ve met without this program. It has also really helped me come out of my shell and develop valuable life skills such as public speaking and problem solving. I’m very excited to be a state officer this year to further my involvement in this incredible program and make a difference with the team!
Hello Wyoming DECA my name is Makenna Tucker and I am this years Vice President of Marketing! I joined DECA my freshman year at the Cheyenne East Chapter, not knowing what I was getting myself into. DECA has to been one of the best experiences of my life, meeting new people from near and far. With DECA I have traveled all throughout the state of Wyoming and even all the way to Washington DC. I think I can speak for all of us, we are all really excited and what we have planned to make this year the best year yet.
