Members of the New Hampshire DECA State Officer Team met with Governor Sununu for CTSO Day with many other CTE student organizations. They encouraged his for his support of career and technical education in New Hampshire.  They met with him on February 5th in the state capitol building in Concord, New Hampshire. It was an exciting meeting for the students. They enjoyed talking with the governor and learning about his views on business education, and the need for entrepreneurship in New Hampshire.
