#FabFriday: OCA Las Vegas Mentorship Mentees 2015

Our #FabFriday goes to the UNLV DECA members (Dyan Baguio, Helena Lagos, Rochelle Mae Ruiz, and Stephanie Pancho) who will be graduating from the OCA Las Vegas Mentorship Program tomorrow! The mentorship program is a four month long program where mentees are paired with mentors in the mentees’ field of study or interest. Each month, the program hosts a session where OCA Las Vegas brings in prominent leaders to inspire and teach the mentees how to be better professionals. This year, the mentees had an opportunity to learn public speaking from the former White House Commissioner on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Rozita Lee to being a leader in diversity from North Las Vegas City Attorney Sandra Morgan. Previous mentees of the program have benefited in earning internships to learning valuable skills. UNLV DECA is excited to have members continue to be a part of the program for two consecutive years. Congratulations to the graduates of this prestigious mentorship program!

#FabFriday: Nevada DECA Members

Our #FabFriday goes out to all of the Nevada DECA members who will be competing in the 2015 International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Orlando, Florida! Nevada DECA members competed in the State Conference last February where the best competitors in each category qualified to compete at the international level. At ICDC, Nevada DECA members have the opportunity to learn more about their industry, win international fame, and help members determine where their future career will lead them. On behalf of Nevada DECA Alumni and the UNLV Collegiate DECA members, we wish you all good luck and an amazing experience at ICDC!

#FabFriday: Curtis Haley

Our #FabFriday goes to our favorite Nevada DECA State Director Curtis Haley! Curtis is one of the individuals who have helped make Nevada DECA stronger and continues to be a role model for many Nevada DECA members. Some of our UNLV DECA members have been state officers who were coached by Curtish Haley. These members have made a big impact in our chapter in forming the policies and events we continue to have. Curtis continues to support our chapter in various capacities and helps bridge the gap between Collegiate and the High School Nevada DECA chapters. Thank you for everything you have done for us and Nevada DECA! We look forward to many exciting years!

#FabFriday: Christian Perez

Our #FabFriday goes to our Conference Coordinator Christian Perez! Christian is pursuing a degree  in accounting and started his DECA career with our chapter. Christian was the first members to ask for a more leadership role in our chapter and was one of the first members to submit his letter to apply for the Executive Council. Christian was an immediate yes for the position of Conference Coordinator after he competed in his first DECA conference at the Utah Fall Leadership Conference. He expanded his role by continuing to be active in various projects from being a leader in committees such as the Applebee’s Breakfast Social Committee to taking lead in organizing the practices for the International Career Development Conference. Christian also competed in UNLV DECA’s 2nd Annual Shark Tank and his team won the competition! In any project, Christian’s sole concern is how members are doing and maintaining morale. Thank you for your hard work and we look forward to many years with you!

#FabFriday: Rochelle Mae Ruiz

Our #FabFriday goes to Rochelle Mae Ruiz! Rochelle is a freshmen pursing a degree in Business and started her DECA career with our chapter. Rochelle’s start to Career Technical Student Organizations was in Southwest Career and Technical Academy’s HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America). As a freshman, Rochelle has made her mark within  our organization. She has proven herself not only to be a leader, but a dependable member of our organization. Rochelle has taken leadership roles in over three committees and made sure the projects are seen to the end. Even if it includes last minute meetings, Rochelle makes sure to come prepared and is willing to take on any tasks. Rochelle has also proven herself to be an outstanding representative of our chapter when she was tasked to represent us at OCA Las Vegas meetings. Thank you for your hard work and we look forward to more memories with you!
