Fort Hays State University students
earned International honors again at the Collegiate DECA International
Career Development Conference this April in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Jessica Tormey (pictured), Derby senior, placed second in Business
Research, and Caitlyn Thomas, McCook, Neb., senior, placed in the top
fifteen in Web Design. What made this year different was the additional
title Tormey came home with – Collegiate DECA National Vice President.
Tormey, a DECA member since her senior year of high school, chartered
the Collegiate DECA chapter at FHSU in the fall of 2008. Since its
inception, FHSU students have placed in the top ten for all four years.
Tormey has placed third in Advertising Campaign and second in
Entrepreneurship with Tyler Thompson, Derby senior, and second in
Business Research as an individual. Additionally, Tormey received the
Leadership Passport Award for excellence in community service.
This year, as a member of the five person leadership team, Tormey will
be responsible for communicating with her assigned states, increasing
Collegiate DECA membership and conference registration, and serving as a
representative for Collegiate DECA. Tormey will represent the District
of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North
Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
Tormey looks forward to representing FHSU on a national level throughout
the next year as a Collegiate DECA National Vice President.
