Entrepreneurship Field Trip
Tom Chapman, the keynote speaker, is working to develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. On top of owning several businesses and speaking around the United States, he helps the Iowa West Foundation, SBDC, and the SW Iowa Alliance groups grow businesses and help entrepreneurs of all industries. Our students were put into small groups and had the challenge of coming up with a new business product or service to pitch to the rest of the teams and schools who participated. Three students from Stanton, Sam L., Ty M., and Olivia S. played key roles in presenting and earning a 1st place finish for their team! The knowledge and skills they learned both in class and at the conference will be vital to their future projects this school year. A great start to the year, entrepreneurs!
