Electives: Entrepreneurship


Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship Awards School Year 2014-15
Maritza M. and Jerry E. represented HMSA at the NFTE Business Plan Contest this past Wednesday evening at HMS. They competed against the top 42 businesses out of the 1800 that began the competition. Our representatives did a superb job with their presentations and handled themselves in a professional, business like manner which is not only a credit to themselves but to HMSA and the academic environment they have grown up in over the past 4 years. Unfortunately, neither of them are advancing to the Regionals as contest participants. However, Maritza has been contracted to provide 200 of her yummy cake pops at the Regionals and will be allowed to set up her own display booth along with the other winners from last Wednesday's contest. She may be out of the money contest-wise but she is exercising what she has learned by doing business, making contacts, getting noticed, and making the most of the opportunity she has been afforded and that is what entrepreneurship is all about. Jerry has also been contracted by another school to cater at an event they are holding so he is also out there doing the same thing as Maritza. Please be sure to congratulate these two seniors for the outstanding job they have done and wish them good luck with their business ventures.
