State Officer Advisors

Bob: I’m embarking on my 51st year with DECA, an unbroken streak of conference attendance. My time with the Riverside DECA chapter has been marked by incredible achievements: We’ve graced two US Presidential Inaugural Balls as guests of honor, enjoyed VIP status at County Music Awards, showcased our chapter on a cereal box, and even witnessed our DECA state President cohosting an MTV show. I am honored to serve as one of the State Officer Advisors for PA DECA

GayeAnn: I’m proud to be part of my 8th state officer team, a journey that began back in 2001 when I first got involved with DECA. Beyond my dedication to DECA, I’m also a proud mom, celebrating my child’s remarkable achievement as a first-place winner at ICDC. I am honored to serve in this capacity. I love working with young people and watching them succeed.
