Last week, our very own co-founder Epiphany Ramirez competed in the DECA State Career Conference in Rochester, NY. Epiphany competed against over 2,000 students and 100 high schools from across the state.
Epiphany participated in the Community Service Chapter Project event and was awarded 1st place.
Epiphany chose to partner her two interests: DECA and Eye Partners Inspire. Epiphany centered Walt Whitman DECA events to Eye Partners Inspire. For about a year, Epiphany worked to expose Walt Whitman DECA chapter members to the true cost of eyeglasses and the reality of financially struggling neighbors. Many Walt Whitman DECA members got the opportunity to work with Eye Partners Inspire and hold diverse events for the foundation.
Moreover, because of Epiphany's outstanding achievement she will be competing in the DECA International Career Development Conference which is held in Anaheim, California. We wish her the best of luck and look forward to her continual success.
