The DECA chapter from St. Amant High School was in attendance when the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Washington Wizards 107-105 on Dec. 11 at the Smoothie King Center n New Orleans.

Before the game, the DECA group attended several sessions at the Smoothie King Center with business people in marketing/entertainment and hospitality.

DECA’s Starla Strait and Zaria Provo interviewed two Pelicans dancers and Victoria Stewart, a state officer for Louisiana DECA, was offered to the chance to present the game ball.

The game also allowed DECA to help needy families by teaming up with the Sheriff’s Office to provide Christmas stockings stuffed with toys for children whose families can’t afford them.
