NH DECA's State Officer Team Visits Governor Chris Sununu
Members of the 2017 New Hampshire DECA State Officer Team met with Governor Sununu to present him with a plaque to thank him for his support of career and technical education in New Hampshire. They met with him on February 3rd, in the state capitol building in Concord, New Hampshire. It was an exciting meeting for the students. They enjoyed talking with the governor and learning about his views on business education, and the need for entrepreneurship in New Hampshire. The Officers also enjoyed the Governor's stories about his own business experience in our state. DECA wants to support CTE Month, going on now!
