Kayla Brasher of Jemison High School has been elected state DECA President.
After campaigning at the state career development conference in Montgomery, Brasher’s peers from across the state voted her in as the 2010-11 president.
Brasher is a junior at JHS. She is the daughter of Harland and Rita of Jemison.
As a member of her local DECA chapter for the past two years, Brasher has strived to be active. She has attended regional and state leadership conferences and competed on several levels.
As president of the state association, Brasher has a busy schedule ahead of her. She will attend the International Career Development Conference in Louisville, Ky. in April, and she will have a week-long training conference in Opelika and attend the State Officer Institute in Washington D.C. along with regional and state leadership conferences.
“Kayla is ready to take on this role,” said Sandi Cullen, Brasher’s advisor. “She is a very hard worker and is very dedicated. I look forward to working with her in her new position in the coming year.”

Alan Thompson is the principal of Jemison High School.
