Karvee Tamba, President
Hi, my name is Karvee Tamba and I am your 2016 Delaware State President . I am a senior at William Penn High School and have previously served as William Penn High School DECA vice president. Outside of DECA, I serve as my senior class President, member of National Honor Society, Key Club, BPA, and French club. I love DECA because it prepares you for the workforce, you learn a lot of leadership skills, and you can network with a large group of students who are all unique. I want Delaware DECA to bond with each other more and also for us to have a few national winners this year. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of you at the Fall Leadership Conference! Good Luck to all the members and make this year an amazing year for Delaware DECA.
Katarina Milewski, Vice President
Katarina Milewski is honored to be your 2015-2016 Delaware State Vice President!
Katarina is entering her senior year at Glasgow High School, where she plans on attending the University of Delaware and getting her master’s degree in management. Pursuing a master’s degree, Katarina wishes to take her passion for leadership and entrepreneurship into a profession as an entrepreneur, striving to become a prominent part of a large world.
Since her sophomore year, Katarina has been a member of DECA and has served as a chapter president for two years following her position as treasurer. Her desire to serve the organization and its illustrious members has never wavered; instead, she continually strives to make the best of her DECA experiences.
Her enthusiasm and devotion travels even beyond DECA. Katarina has been recognized for numerous awards and is actively involved in clubs. As a matter of fact, Katarina has been nominated for the National Business Education Award from the United States Achievement Academy for two years in a row as well as the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists Award of Excellence from Buzz Aldrin. Although she is most passionate about DECA, Katarina is a part of AFJROTC, National Honor Society, Business Professionals of America and Students in Action.
Katarina credits a great deal of her success to the lessons she has learned through being a member of DECA. The organization has taught her personal responsibility and determination, and has given her the opportunity to build and showcase her passion for business. She hopes through representing Delaware DECA she inspires young members to step out of their comfort zone and to remember, all your dreams can come true if you gain the courage to pursue them.
