ST. MARYS — Though St. Marys residents may know Garet Fledderjohann for his skills on the Roughrider basketball court, the 18-year-old has drive and passion for more than sports.

Fledderjohann is active in the Memorial High School chapter of DECA. The program has given him invaluable experience in an area he hopes to pursue as a career. The past two years he has competed in the DECA state competitions, where he has done well.

One year, he presented a case study to judges as part of a team, but he found that he works better by himself.
