Hi! I’m Shrey Patel, your Iowa DECA President. I’m currently also the Vice President of Finance for Ames High DECA where I’m a Senior. Joining DECA my Freshman year was one of my best career decisions. Not only have I improved my leadership skills and built a thriving network of our awesome members across the state and nation, but DECA has provided me with numerous opportunities to help better my career and to give back to the community that’s given me so much. As your President, my goal is to encourage and ensure every member fully utilizes the opportunities available through DECA and provide support to help members realize their full potential and excel at every level of the competition. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time, and I’ll be happy to help you on your way to success.
