Hi Wyoming DECA! I am Charlie Thomas, your 2023-2024 Vice President of Leadership! I joined DECA my sophomore year after taking a marketing last freshman year, and I missed that connection I had with my marketing class. However, it led me to DECA. DECA has taught me a lot of life skills such as how to talk in front of groups of people, communicating my thoughts effectively, working as a team, and helping answer questions on the spot. Last year I was Cheyenne South’s Chapter President and it felt really good to give back to the program that made me feel welcome when I didn’t really feel I had a place. That is why I decided to run for State Office and here I am now. If you ever have any questions or just want to chat, send me an email and I’d love to get back with you as soon as I can. Once again thank you for giving me this opportunity to help grow DECA in the state of Wyoming!
