The Museum of American Finance in lower Manhattan has awarded a $1,500 scholarship to one of our juniors. Students become eligible for this award by taking one of their excellent free classes about business and finance; their Spring schedule of one session-per-week courses is now available via this link.
Speaking of young entrepreneurs, the seniors in Social Studies teacher Eric Wisotsky’s Economics class continue to develop their "Toys for Teens" new business design, production, & marketing plans. Noted non-profit legal expert David Miller visited the class to answer questions about tax aspects of their enterprise; our thanks to Mr. Wisotsky and consultant Pam Chimel of the Teen Entrepreneur Boot Camp for facilitating this presentation.
Yet another outstanding Social Studies teacher, Linda Weissman, arranged for Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Dolle , an expert on the Human Labor and Sex-Trafficking issue, to visit her Criminal Law classes. The students were fascinated by the honest and open discussion of how young women from around the world are victimized by sophisticated international trafficking rings. The presentation actually took place on January 11th, which happens to be „Sex-Trafficking Awareness Day‟; learn more at this link.
