Seventy-First High School DECA Club

On Wednesday, October 28, 2015, DECA traveled to Fayetteville, N.C., to showcase the positive impact of the AT&T Aspire Mentoring Academy on DECA members at Seventy-First High School.  The Aspiring Mentoring Academy is an AT&T funded project focused on improving high school graduation rates and preparing high school students for college and careers. DECA’s trip to Fayetteville provided an opportunity to hear personal testimonies from DECA members, advisors, school officials and AT&T employees on the project.

Chip Lucas, CTE Director for Cumberland County Schools, is excited about having AT&T present at Seventy-First.  “This is a great opportunity for Seventy-First and Cumberland County schools,” Lucas said. “It’s wonderful to have such a recognizable company as AT&T present.”
