JAMESTOWN, ND (NewsDakota.com) – The Distributive Education Clubs of America, or DECA, held their International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Atlanta, GA in April, where thousands gathered for the education and election of leaders.
A junior from Jamestown High School was among those elected to the position of Vice President of the Central Region.
Ross Motter is the son of Aaron and Elsie Motter and has been a DECA participant for two years. He says he was interested because his mother attended the same program when she was in high school.
Motter says his goal in going to ICDC was to run for a leadership position.
With his title, Motter will represent 13 states and the national DECA. He will serve with other elected officials from Tennessee and Washington. He added that he was honored to be the first from Jamestown to serve on the board.
Motter will retain the title through 2022 and 2023 before elections are held again at ICDC in Florida.
He encouraged anyone interested in self-improvement and becoming a future leader to explore DECA in their area.
