Indiana DECA Visits Indiana State

The Scott College of Business at Indiana State University is proud to support the Indiana DECA high school organization. DECA was founded in 1946 to impact the lives of students by providing curricular programs that integrate applied learning in marketing, business management, finance, and hospitality & tourism through competition and community engagement.

Indiana State recently hosted the DECA Indiana District 7 Competition, which involved students competing in written and interactive components judged by industry professionals. District 7 includes high schools from Clay, Greene, Owen Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Vigo Counties. 

According to Dean Terry Daugherty, “DECA is an amazing organization that significantly impacts the career readiness of students interested in business. It is always fun to host students on campus and we are grateful for District 7 Coordinator Gen Craft’s (and SCOB ISU alum – Go Sycamores!) leadership.” Ms. Craft teaches business at Terre Haute South Vigo High School.

The college is losing two well-respected members of faculty this month.

Dr. David Robinson is retiring from Indiana State after 16 years. Retirement is always something that deserves to be celebrated and we hope to see David around Federal Hall in the future. While here David introduced some great innovations for our students such as the Executive Express Café and Sycamore Business Advisors.

Dr. Kelly Wilkinson is leaving Indiana State University at the end of January after 19 years of service.  Kelly has been named the new Dean of the Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University.  Kelly has impacted the lives of thousands of students during her career at Indiana State while helping to elevate the college to be among the best business schools worldwide. This is a tremendous opportunity for Kelly, but we are going to miss her spirit tremendously.
