Day 23 - Proud Community Members

Today's post is from Kay Riley, Mound Westonka graduate, community member and parent of four MWHS grads

My husband, Mike and I are both graduates of Mound Westonka High School and all 4 of our children graduated from MWHS, as well.  We are proud and honored to be members of this community and the schools in Mound.  With my embroidery business I have contact with a lot of the students and teams and working with them over the years has been a joy.

Because this blog is sponsored by MWHS DECA, I want to share a DECA story that is very close to me.  My daughter, Megan Dunn, is a 2004 graduate of MWHS.  During her junior year she joined the DECA program.  DECA is what opened her eyes to a great extracurricular program beyond sports (Megan says she was not very athletic) and piqued her interest in marketing.  DECA also brought Megan to Chicago for the first time for a national competition and turned her on to the city where she eventually went to college and lived for the past 9 years.  Megan graduated from DePaul University in 2008 with a degree in marketing.   After working as a brand manager for Expo Dry Erase markers for a few years in Chicago, she recently moved to Los Angeles and is now working for Mattel as an Associated Marketing Manager for the Disney Princess lines.  All this started with the great DECA program at MWHS!
