Edmonds-Woodway and Lynnwood both have had their Student Stores nationally certified by DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America).

In order to be certified, store managers had to write a comprehensive document on the operation of the store. Both documents submitted for the certification process were in excess of 75 pages each. There were only 169 other schools in the nation that had their stores certified this year.

Lynnwood High student Ryan Baker and Marketing Instructor Don Ide had the opportunity to present to the Washington State House of Representatives – Education Committee on the importance of financial education. Don Ide says, “Other panels that spoke in support of our presentation included Randy Dorn, Superintendent of Public Instruction. It was a fun day.”
