Kristi Nielsen and Michelle Schifano,
State Officer Coordinators
What an adventure, Mississippi! Welcome to a new semester of opportunities to “Expand Your
Network” with Collegiate DECA! We are sure your local chapter has many activities planned
to help you sharpen your skills and enhance your network of connections. As the Mississippi
Collegiate DECA State Officer Coordinators. We can assure you that this team of officers has
worked hard to make sure every member has the opportunity to experience as much
Collegiate DECA as you are able.
For some members, becoming a state officer is the best way to experience Collegiate DECA. It
is sometimes stressful and a lot of work. The benefits of being a state officer are too numerous
to count and far too rewarding to measure. We are former officers ourselves. We can assure
you of both work and stress. However, I can also assure you of stomach-aching laughter,
strange nick-names, even stranger looks and life-long friendships, connections, and memories.
. . Oh, the memories! Any former officer would be more than willing to speak with you about
the responsibilities, requirements, and obligations of becoming a state officer for Mississippi
Collegiate DECA. Most contact information can be found on our state website, as well as our
Facebook page and/or most publications of Mississippi Collegiate DECA.
While in attendance at our State Career Development Conference, We challenge each of
Mississippi’s members to, first, meet as many “new” people as you can. Second, visit the officer
candidate rally and get to know those willing to step up and take on the responsibility of
leading your state association. Third, do your best in all your events/activities. Last, but not
least, have fun! We hope to see you in April, at International Career Development Conference
in Orlando, Florida.

Northeast Mississippi Community College HM Chapter Well, Mississippi, NEMCC HM Chapter has had an insanely busy year! Before the fall semester even started in July, we recruited members during Orientation Sessions and in August, we got the ball rolling with a trip to the Mississippi / Louisiana Restaurant show to witness the innovations and products available in the Hospitality Industry. With new classes in September, we elected new Chapter Officers to lead us through the year. October was by far our busiest month: We attended the Fall Leadership Conference in Raymond, had our annual DECA Week Pot Luck Luncheon for Faculty, Staff and Administration on campus, and our Battle of the Bands Fundraiser! Also in October, we participated with the NEMCC Student Government Association in their campus‐

November was also the month where we launched our Coat Drive for needy children in our area and our chapter advisor was able to represent our chapter at the Collegiate Leadership Academy in New York. In December, we recruited prizes and sold tickets for a chance to win the prizes. In addition, we adopted three Angels from local Angel Trees for the Christmas season. We ultimately took a breather with our Fall Semester Christmas Social at a local restaurant. The time off didn’t dull our edge though, and in the new year we hosted the District III High School DECA Conference, and the Regional TSA Conferences! In February, we again teamed with our SGA to cater their Valentine’s Dance, as well as sold Valentine’s Cakes as a fundraiser.

Pearl River Community College
Collegiate DECA Members Expand their
The Pearl River Collegiate DECA Chapter got their year started by attending their annual Fall Leadership Conference. The day conference was held on October 5 at the C.M. Brewer Conference Center in Raymond, Mississippi. This conference is designed to introduce new DECA members to the competitive events and opportunities available through membership with the organization. At the conference, students received valuable information on how to enhance their professional skills and how to “stand out” in a competitive job market. With this being the first official conference of the school year, students from Pearl River also had the chance to meet with other Collegiate DECA members from across the state attending other community and senior colleges. “This is a great way for students from our local chapter to learn what other groups are doing in terms of fundraising, charitable work, and how they are preparing for their competitive events” stated Dakota Dale‐PRCC DECA member and State Collegiate DECA President. 10‐10‐10! This was the date the Rankin Campus Collegiate DECA Chapter of Hinds Community College participated in the American Heart Association Heart Walk in downtown Jackson. Hinds Community College was one of many major sponsors of the heart walk providing many “teams” to fundraise and walk. Teams met at the State Capitol Sunday, October 10th and walked through downtown Jackson. The Rankin Campus Marketing and Fashion Marketing had teams participate in this year’s heart walk. The “Marketing Gurus” raised a total of $365.00 and the “Fashionistas” raised a total of $146.00 for a grand total of $511.00 Pictured left to right back row: Ginny Taylor, Fashion Instructor; Jane Foreman, Marketing Instructor and DECA Advisor; Lindsey Ponder, Fashion student, Mrs. Pratt Leflore and husband Pratt Leflore who is a marketing student. Also pictured Ginny Taylor and Pratt Leflore’s children. The Collegiate DECA State Officers also gave students an inside look on what it takes to be successful when competing within the organization. Students then received the opportunity to test these skills by participating in a mock role‐play event while at the conference. Three students from Pearl River competed in the simulated event and were recognized as 1st place winners in their competitive sections. The winning students from Pearl River were Donni Winn of Picayune, Zach Kirschenheuter of Poplarville, and Jacob Golden of Poplarville. These students as well as the entire Pearl River Chapter hope to medal in the top 3 places at the State Collegiate DECA Conference in February and travel to the International Conference that will be held in sunny Orlando, Florida this April.

This year 150 families with a total of 435 children were assisted. Families eligible for the assistance received two sets of clothing, school supplies, and a back pack for each child enrolled in school grades K‐
12. The Rankin Campus Collegiate DECA students worked 5 days during July to assist NewDay in organizing and merchandising the clothing and school supplies. They also assisted in the handout of items to the families. “My students gave up a week of their summer to help these kids and NewDay Mississippi. I am so proud of their hard work and commitment to help these kids. To see the faces of the kids receiving new school supplies and clothes is so heartwarming” stated Jane Foreman, Collegiate DECA Advisor.

Rankin Campus Collegiate DECA – Raises Over $1,200 in Christmas Project
The Rankin Campus Collegiate DECA Chapter of Hinds Community College in conjunction with T & D Furniture in Pearl, MS held a non‐perishable food and toy drive this past November and December. This is the second year to partner with T & D Furniture and Collegiate DECA Alumni and store managers, Nylander and Shawn Cochran. Current student/employee Katherine Schneider helped to coordinate the drive again this year. The drive was publicized on T & D Furniture’s television ads throughout the month of November. Patrons of T & D Furniture brought in items for a chance to win a $500 gift certificate from the store and DECA students collected additional items from family, friends and other students/faculty of Hinds. This year’s fundraiser topped last year’s total of $1,000. This year over $600 in non‐perishable food items and $600 in toys were collected. The nonperishable and frozen turkeys were delivered to The Stewpot in Jackson to help feed homeless and families who have fallen on hard times. According to the Mississippi Food Network, whose mission is “to eliminate poverty‐related hunger” in the area, there was a 30% increase in persons needing assistance in 2010. Many working families, not homeless or lazy, referred to as the “working poor,” sought help from the Mississippi Food Network or Stewpot and had to be turned away due a lack of food donations. Additionally, over $600 in toys were collected for Toys for Tots and taken to the Marine Headquarters in Jackson. Many children woke up with toys because of the generosity of T & D Furniture and the Rankin campus students. “If my two‐year‐old son did not have any gifts to open, I know I would feel really bad on Christmas morning,” said Business Marketing major, Walker Sparks, age 20, of Brandon, and member of DECA, “Toys for Tots brightens up a child’s Christmas.” Great job on community service Hinds Rankin Collegiate DECA chapter!
