HHS Students listen to Entrepreneurs

On January 5th, 2011, Harvey High School students were treated to presentations by two local entrepreneurs.  The students most likely thought this was just a great chance to not have to listen to their teacher.  But all eyes were fixed on the presenters:  Ms Jennifer Pealer of Jennifer And Company plus Mr. John Gadd of Flozio.

The students in attendance participate in the E-City program through the business class taught by Ms. Nell Rapport.  E-City allows high school students to learn about entrepreneurship by starting and operating their own business, in addition to writing a business plan.

The program is funded through Big Brothers – Big Sisters of North East Ohio.  In addition to listening to speakers today, three of the student companies repaid their seed funding loan commitment to Big Brother – Big Sister.  The loan repayments were made through profits from product sales for each individual student run business.

You can see how the presentation went by looking at images on the following slide show link:


E-City students – you rock!
