WASHINGTON — “I’ll be involved with planning the International Career Development Conference in Atlanta next May and my regional conference in Milwaukee in December,” Brashear said.
The five day international conference draws students from across the county and around the world.
“This is the absolute greatest honor of my life,” said Brashear. “Running for international office has been my ultimate goal for the past four years and to see that become a reality is the best feeling in the world.”
In addition to being the Central Region Vice President, Brashear is also the Vice President of the entire DECA nation that represents over 54,000 students in the United States.
Brashear is also involved in student council, Beta Club and Business Professionals of America (BPA). He and Garrett Burton, Hunter Potts, and Jake Brashear were in Orlando earlier this week for the BPA National Leadership Conference where the threesome competed in the video production team portion of the conference. For the contest, the team had to create a three to five minute video production based on an assigned topic. He also received the Lily Foundation Scholarship from the Davies County Community Foundation.
Brashear was not the only member of the local DECA chapter to receive recognition at the conference. Schilling and Alexandra Rosa were the first students from Washington to place second at the International Career Development Conference for their stock portfolio. Washington has had previous third place finishes and Brashear and Austin Bush placed first in the same competition last year.
