Americus-Sumter Panthers made an ‘epic’ imprint at the Georgia National Fair this year. Bailey Roberson, a junior at Americus-Sumter High School, placed second in competition with her promotional speech and earned a $100 prize. DECA is a marketing and business organization that allows young and innovative entrepreneurs to have a better understanding of the business world. Roberson says, ‘I aim to be larger than life; every day I try to get closer to obtaining that goal.’ Americus-Sumter High School DECA has big plans for the 2015-2016 school year; many competitions and events are to be won. Americus-Sumter’s DECA chamber’s goal is to be ‘epic’, just like Georgia DECA’s goal.
