Underage drinking kills DECA at AVHS
School officials say problem has persisted for two decades
Instances of underage drinking during school-sponsored DECA events have caused Apple Valley High School to suspend the program for at least four years, according to school officials.
“Sometimes decisions based on the actions of a few affect everyone,” school Principal Stephen Degenaar said. “It’s unfortunate, but we’ve done all we can do to correct misbehavior and it hasn’t worked.” See story by Jessica Harper, Sun Thisweek
