We celebrate their accomplishments and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors. The sky is the limit for these brilliant entrepreneurial minds!
Brandon Fan- Blacksburg High School, Blacksburg, VA
“Brandon is the best entrepreneurial mind I have taught in 20 years. He became involved with BHS DECA as a junior and developed a business forum for Global Entrepreneurship Week. An innovator at heart, Brandon and a classmate presented his app idea called "Sprout" in DECA's Entrepreneurship written event and advanced to international competition. He has also created an app called Biblink, which connects Christians to bible study sources, along with a research-based medical app focusing on healthcare analytics. Brandon served as the Vice President of Entrepreneurship for our BHS DECA Chapter this year. He plans to attend the University of Michigan to study Engineering and Business."

They led the digital memory books project at JCS, which were visual yearbooks that followed students and classes around throughout the school year to capture memories digitally. It became a profitable business and they competed with it in regional and state entrepreneurship competitions in Kentucky, including the Lt. Governor's Entrepreneurship Challenge. They were also speakers on the 2019 National Entrepreneurship Week webinar for entrepreneurship education day."
