Fairfax High DECA members Abby Garcia and Elle McNally used their marketing skills to plan and execute the Later-Haters campaign to raise awareness and encourage students to take the pledge to end cyber bullying and inspire change in the community and throughout the cyber world.  Anyone can take the pledge online. Garcia and McNally inspired their classmates to spread positivity. Over thirty students used their leadership skills to lead various activities in school and around the community to encourage students to sign the pledge. All 231 DECA members have signed the pledge, created signs, designed a message to be included in bathroom stalls, and created banners with positive messages.
