  • Welcome Letter for 2022/23 School Year

    The following information provides you with an overview of Gulfport High School’s DECA program.  It highlights the purpose of DECA and what you can expect as a DECA member.  Students in grades 9th through 12th grade are eligible for membership.

    Chapter Membership - DECA makes a positive difference in students’ lives by developing their potential for citizenship, leadership, teamwork, personal growth, and career success. The experience provides opportunities at the local, district, and state levels.

    The registration deadline is September 10, 2022.

    Students benefit from CTSO (career and technical student organizations) experiences that do the following:

    • Make school-to-career connections for students;
    • Develop students’ career and leadership skills;
    • Prepare students to be responsible citizens; and
    • Earn students’ recognition and build their self-confidence.

    Leadership - Our DECA leadership will consist of students enrolled in the GHS Academic Institute’s Lodging, Hospitality, and Tourism 2-year program.  As a leader, you will represent Gulfport High School, Gulfport DECA, and Mississippi DECA. Your position will enable you to play an active role in continuing the legacy of GHS DECA.
