Workplace Skills students complete business entrepreneurship project
On Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2009, students enrolled in Alison Moore’s Workplace Skills for the 21st Century class, participated in a unique activity involving many of New Albany’s downtown merchants. The students, all juniors and seniors from New Albany High School, Myrtle Attendance Center, and East Union Attendance Center, are currently studying entrepreneurship and learning about what it takes to start a business.
The students were taken downtown where they interviewed business owners in the following stores: The Bead Shack, The Blue Rose, Calico Mushroom, The Coffee Addict, Latham’s, Moda, Rick’s Wix/Antique Mall, Rodeo Salon, T. Sappington & Co., Something Special, Southern Traditions, Slab Stone Surfaces, Two Doors Down, and Van Atkins. Students asked the storeowners a variety of questions about how the businesses began, when they originally opened, how they have changed, and the stresses of owning a business.
The purpose of the project was to not only learn about entrepreneurship, but to also learn about the history of downtown New Albany.
After conducting the interviews, the students returned to the classroom and created presentations based on their interviews and will soon share their findings with many of the other students enrolled in the New Albany School of Career and Technical Education.
