Introducingâ€Ś. Your 2013-2014 Area 7 President
Colin Piwtorak! Hello, my name is Colin Piwtorak and I am currently a junior at Rogers High School in Puyallup. I became involved in DECA through my schoolâ€™s Business and Marketing classes as a freshman. This year and last I qualified to compete at SCDC with the help of my partner in Finance Team Decision Making both years and Entrepreneurship Innovation Plan this year. Joining DECA has been one of the best highlights of my high school career and it is only getting better. Other activities I am involved in outside of DECA include Cross Country, Track & Field, symphonic winds, and jazz band. Making new connections and learning valuable information along the way, DECA has become part of my life and I cannot wait to represent Area 7 and Washington DECA next year. Colin will take office this April/May at ICDC and will serve until ICDC the following year. Good luck!
