Cherokee Trail High School-School Based Enterprise Gold Level Winner

Peyton Miller/Jessie Lee

Chapter Campaign Winner

DECA State Officer-Dominique Yushkevich – Dist. RVP #2


The DECA students from Cherokee Trail HS came to DCAC to deliver a very special donation for our forensic interview program. As the students donated 20 Build-a-Bears, we were able to explain to them that every child that we see in our forensic interview program gets to pick out a stuffed animal to take home with them and that their Build-a-Bears would be used for that purpose! Everyone at DCAC is overjoyed by this donation and we can't wait to see our the joy on our client's faces when they get to pick out a brand new stuffed animal that was made with love.

Thank you again, Cherokee Trail High School! We are so grateful for all your kindness and generosity!
