With guidance from Mrs. Garcia and their Junior Achievement mentor, eight of our senior cadets formed a Junior Achievement team back in October. They had six months to create, run, and evaluate their business, which they called “R House.” The hip school apparel line proved to be a success along with their presentation to the judges who voted them this year’s Junior Achievement Team.
They received a trophy, a check for $500.00, and they will now be considered as a contender for the National Junior Achievement competition to take place in Washington D.C. this June. It was a big thrill and another great title to win for our school.
Kudos to Mrs Garcia and the following cadets: Alfonso Paraqua, Sandra Castillo, Henry Nunez, Nathan Blanco, Abril Villegas, Esteban Guadiana, Anthony Ponciano, and Adriana.
