The DECA No Mercy Step Team was established in 2012 with the vision of promoting scholarship, service, health & fitness, as well as building positive relationships through stepping. Our steppers are a group of highly motivated, school-spirited, respectful, high school/college students who will represent DECA during a number of school-sponsored events. No Mercy is the proud to be the first award winning, competitive club in DECA history.
Our mission is to build a foundation and create a legacy that DECA will forever cherish. We target prospective steppers that will continue to safeguard the vision and develop into the leaders of tomorrow.
