My marketing teacher, Mr. Gebert, encouraged me to go to the DECA Conference. He knew that I was too shy and that I needed to get out of my comfort zone. He told me that it will be good practice and I wouldn’t regret it. So, I tried it.

Telcom & Data, a Milwaukee based telecommunications company, proudly congratulates employee, Lisbette Rivera, on taking third place in a local DECA competition. DECA is an organization that helps young leaders develop in the areas marketing, hospitality, finance, and management. The competition took place at Milwaukee Area Technical College.
Rivera is a senior at Alexander Hamilton High School. She became involved with DECA her junior year. "My marketing teacher, Mr. Gebert, encouraged me to go to the DECA Conference. He knew that I was too shy and that I needed to get out of my comfort zone. He told me that it will be good practice and I wouldn’t regret it. So, I tried it,” said Rivera.
Rivera participated this year in the retail competition. She took two written tests and answered two role playing questions before a panel of judges from the local business community. Rivera is grateful for her high marks from the judges. “It was an amazing experience, I wish I was able to do it again next year,” she commented.
Her third place award now sits proudly on her desk at Telcom & Data. Her co-workers are very impressed with her accomplishments at such a young age.
