3 of 7 State DECA leadership roles go to LSH

There are seven officers from around the state who serve Ohio DECA, and the Lima Senior DECA program makes up three of them this year.

After campaigning in Columbus Oct. 30, senior Dalonte Manley was elected Vice President of Leadership Development, and senior Quinn Gable was elected Vice President of Community Outreach.

Both had to go through a screening process, deliver a speech and answer impromptu questions to voting delegates. They were then elected by other members of Ohio DECA at the Ohio DECA Fall Leadership Conference.

Senior Cora Bicknell competed to become a Public Relations Officer. She had to take a test, write a press release and give an interview.

In addition, Ti’ara Spivey placed third in Parliamentary Law. She also had to take a test and give an interview. She was among 45 competing and missed becoming an officer by just a few points.

Gable and Manley are presidents of the two Lima Senior DECA chapters this year. Bicknell is vice president of one of the chapters and Spivey is Vice President of Finance

Fike honored for Eagle Scout Project

    

Lima Senior High School Senior Peter Fike was honored today by Mayor David Berger for his work at Faurot Park for his Eagle Scout project.

Fike rehabilitated a trail staircase on the northeast side of the park that allows access to the park for local neighborhoods. The staircase had fallen into despair and decay.

With the help of fellow Boy Scouts and other volunteers, Fike removed and replaced more than 30 stairs made of railroad tires and installed 80 feet of sturdy railing.

As part of the project, Fike had to develop plans for the job and raise funds to pay for it.

An Eagle Scout project is one of the requirements a Boy Scout is required to fulfill in order to attain the rank of Eagle Scout.

Fike, who is the son of John and Erin Fike, is in Lima Senior’s Interactive Multimedia Program.
