LV Students Compete in the Junior Achievement’s Company Program and ‘You’re Hired’ Program

Lake View participated in Junior Achievement’s Company Program and ‘You’re Hired’ Program on Friday. The ‘You’re Hired’ students participated in a networking session and workshops on branding, leadership and communication.  Senior Miguel Agyei won the ‘networking challenge‘ competition of the ‘You’re Hired’ program. 

The Company Program was particularly rigorous and interesting. Student Team Leads competed for the best original company with a pitch and a business plan. They went through three rounds of competition:  an interview with professionals to compete for the Team Leader of the Year Award in the categories of President, Finance, Marketing, Supply Chain, and Customer Service & Sales.  In rounds two and three, they completed a project board and presentation outlining a business plan. Lake View senior Jenny Bermeo won 2nd place for Team Leader of the Year for her presentation and explanation of our company’s supply chain and sales plan.  Other team members were: Gigi Liang, Uzair Ahmed, and Dylan Justus. 

We worked with Junior Achievement advisor Giovanni Baez on the project.  By all accounts, this was was a worthwhile and educational event for the students.
