Outreach work noted

Friday, September 28, 2007

For the fifth consecutive year, the Students in Free Enterprise won regional championship honors and qualified for the national competition.

During the 2006-07 school year the team coordinated 26 projects that directly impacted more than 2,100 high school, college and community members, with an additional 3,500 individuals reached through their bi-weekly radio show and identity theft programs. In addition to teaching financial literacy and personal success skills, the team also executed projects to teach entrepreneurial skills, market economics and business ethics.

Presenters at the national competition, where the team placed, were seniors Adam Schmitt and Jeff Albin of Plymouth, and Cassie Anderson, Clear Lake; juniors Kendra Willis, Neenah, Wis., and Adam Lund, Apple Valley; and sophomore Oscar Cediel, Bogota, Colombia.
