In April of 2017, my partner Jameson Howard and I competed in Sports Entertainment and Marketing at the international DECA conference. This is the 2nd time William Jewell College has attended DECA ICDC with the relatively new formation of our chapter. We placed as finalists (top 14 teams) out of roughly 60 teams that were competing in Sports Marketing and Entertainment.

During our stay in Anaheim, California, the 6 William Jewell Students and our mentor, Dr. Shelly McVay, toured Newport Beach, Disneyland, and South Coast Plaza. It was an excellent trip and I hope to place in the top 3 at State next year to return!
