Representatives from the Gainesville DECA chapter who attended the District 11 ROPES Leadership Conference Sept. 14 in Republic were, from left, Sage Lane, Nick Woodward, Rylen Wynn, Lance Burnett, Shannon Lutz, Joe Hutchings, Zach Woodward, Rebekah Cummings, Hali Wallace and Kaitlin Conrad. The students gained leadership skills by working through challenging and thrilling obstacles. They met new people in District 11 and learned how to work and communicate better as a chapter and a district. District vice president candidates gave their speeches to the attendees, and Gainesville DECA voting delegates Lance Burnett and Zach Woodward cast the chapter’s vote. As a reward for their hard work and effort, the group enjoyed a meal at Cheddar’s prior to returning to school.
