Just a reminder - Saturday night, November 1st.
On Tuesday, November 18th Fostoria DECA members will head to Columbus to support two of their members as they run for State DECA officer positions. Cyenna Lindsey and Isaiah Brough have earned the right to compete and campaign for the leadership positions.
Cyenna is competing for the Public Relations Officer position. To have this honor she had to place at the District competition, which was held at BGSU on October 6th. Not only did she place, she took 1st. Her competition included an objective test about DECA facts, a one minute self-introduction, and an interview with a panel of judges.
The next officer position, being sought by Brough, is an elected position. In order to be eligible to campaign, Isaiah had to make it through a screening process, which took place in Dublin on Sunday, October 19th. This included an objective test about DECA, a one minute self-introduction (which can now be found on the Ohio DECA web-site @ www.ohiodeca.us) and an extensive interview with past officers and The Department of Education State Staff. On Monday Brough found out made it and could begin to prepare for a campaign to be the Ohio DECA Vice-President of Marketing. To prepare Isaiah will be busy defining his platform, preparing a 4 minute speech, developing promotional materials, and sharpening his communication skills.
The competition and vote will take place at the Columbus Convention Center on November 18th. If you are interested in assisting either member financially or in other ways, please contact Michele Hollister at

Dear Fostoria Community,
We at FCS FETV were informed recently that Channel 10 (FETV), along with other channels like the local weather channel in Fostoria, are showing up black on some televisions. After contacting Time Warner it has been determined that the channel is still broadcasting and is on the Time Warner platform, but the channel is showing up black because of the switch this summer to digital signals and eliminating analog signals. You may have also noticed this issue when looking for other channels like the weather channel (local).
