Ticonderoga High School students attended the 21st annual High School Business Day at SUNY Adirondack May 6.
Local business students were part of 11 schools taking part in the 21st Annual High School Business Day at SUNY Adirondack in Queensbury.
Seven students from the Ti High contingent came away with awards from the event May 6, which had a 2014 theme of, “Mind Your Social Media Business.”
Jarrod Reed finished second in the financial literacy competition, the team of Zeshan Afzal, Ty Denno, Sean Lawrie and Katelyn Troche finished second in the team competition. Mark Donohue finished fourth in impromptu speaking and Ryan Trudeau was fifth in career and financial management.
Business teacher Bill Morse said the students participated in 18 events, including business law, business math, business communications, accounting, keyboard timing, keyboard formatting, career and financial management, economics, computer literacy, marketing, financial literacy, four Cisco/PC related events, display contest, impromptu speaking and team competition.
Overall, 11 schools attended including Ticonderoga, Glens Falls, South Glens Falls, Queensbury, Ballston Spa, Saratoga Springs, Corinth, Granville, North Warren, Bolton and Greenwich.
Morse said the 25 students who attended the event had a great time.
“The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union sponsors the event, which it has done for several years,” Morse said. “The event is organized by SUNY Adirondack, led by Nick Buttino (Business Department head) and The Adirondack Business Educators along with business teachers from the participating schools. Besides the competitive event, students were offered tours of the new residence housing and had an opportunity to use the rock climbing wall in the gym.”
The events are judged by staff at SUNY Adirondack and local businesspeople who help support the event by helping judge the display contest and impromptu speaking.
