The 2017-2018 school year was a great success for the DECA club at Maple Mountain High School. With monthly meetings, leadership conference, and 5 competitions throughout the year the students stayed busy. Leadership Conference was held in Salt Lake City. Students were addressed by an executive from Maverick.
Utah Prevention Day gives secondary schools around the state an opportunity to celebrate the prevention lessons that students have learned throughout the year. Teachers can review and reinforce those life skills taught before students leave for the summer. We want to protect our students from the dangers of drugs, under-age drinking, violence, crime and bullying.

Issack Bahena just returned from the DECA Nationals Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. With competitors for every state, and from Mexico, Spain, Canada, China, and Japan, Issack performed very well and represented Maple Mountain High with pride. Issack was required to take one test and two role play competitions to advance to the final round. With around 200 students in his field, it was a difficult task to be in the top 20 for the final round. Issack was close to reaching the finals. If you see Issack, please tell him congratulations for making it to nationals!
