A Conversation with Cheryl Cullers and Chuck Brome – South Warren’s Ruritan Spaghetti Dinner – Royal Examiner

In this Town Talk, our editor Mike McCool visits Warren County High School and interviews DECA students heading to the DECA International Career Development Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia in April.

In this Town Talk, he will speak with Faryn Gorham, Sarah Waller and Lily Kashner. They received a 2nd place in financial literacy for their company “Sprouting into Success”.

To raise the funds needed to send these students to Nationals, the DECA Chapter is hosting an event on April 2, 2022. They will be selling Caroline BBQ Style Pulled Pork (1/2 lb) or Chicken (2 Thigh Quarters).

Here is the link to the order form. Use the form to order and on Saturday April 2 between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., pick up your order at the entrance to the school cafeteria. They will accept cash, checks (made payable to “WCHS DECA”) and credit/debit cards. Please note that the Chicken/Pork BBQ is the only menu item sold, no side dishes are offered.

The DECA chapter has also set up a GoFundMe page. The goal is to raise $8,000 to cover student registration, hotel and transportation. The deadline is April 10, 2022.

This is a “once in a LIFETIME” experience! Please consider investing in the lives of these young students.


The Warren County High School DECA Club, led by WCHS Business & Marketing professor Richard Gardner, sent 42 students to the State Leadership Conference in Virginia Beach the weekend of March 4. The competition represented the culmination of 8 months of student hard work and dedication both inside and outside of the classroom.

DECA is one of several CTE (vocational and technical education) organizations offered by Warren County Public Schools. DECA works to prepare our students for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management. DECA’s comprehensive learning program incorporates classroom instruction preparing members for colleges and careers; strives to learn with project-based activities; connects students to local businesses and fosters competition to inspire members to excel and improve their performance.
