A Night of Networking for Business Students


High school students in Renee Clock's business ownership and marketing course recently spent an evening attending a small business expo and networking event hosted by Sen. Phil Boyle.

The students had the opportunity to meet with representatives from 20 chambers of commerce and several government agencies and organizations that provide services and resources to small business owners. The young entrepreneurs were able to ask questions and gather information and business cards from various small businesses that were also in attendance, as well as meet with prospective mentors in the career clusters they are interested in.

“My students enjoyed the experience of learning how to network, and about business ownership and different career opportunities that exist,” said Clock.
