Washington’s very own RAM Shack, our School Based Enterprise (SBE) has earned the Gold Level Certification by National DECA. Only six schools in the entire state of Arizona have earned this award, and in the entire United States there are only 360 Gold Certified or Re-Certified SBEs. SBEs earning Gold Level Certification or Gold Re-certification are eligible to participate in the exclusive SBE Academy and competition, held at the International Career Development Conference in Anaheim, California.
To become a DECA-Gold Certified SBE, the students had to complete a 50+ page written School Based Enterprise Plan detailing exactly how our RAM Shack adheres to select model business standards. Seniors Katie Rico and Cecilia Armendarez wrote and submitted the necessary SBE Plan and have earned Washington High School, DECA and the RAM Shack the coveted Gold Level Certification.
Congratulation to Katie and Cecilia, and to Washington DECA for earning this prestigious award. Now on to nationals, DECA ICDC!!
