Students in Chapmanville Regional High School’s Business Program are taking a step further to experience what running a business is really like.
The Accounting II class opened a school business called The Tiger Company were they will be selling school spirit wear such as headbands, necklaces, wigs to wear at games, t-shirts and many more accessories.
Students started the business from scratch and are learning to market, keep inventory and keep accounting records which is a great way for the students to get real world skills in money management, entrepreneurship, and marketing. The business will be operated during lunch, as needed during the school day, and during ballgames.
Students hope to expand as sales grow and open a store that the public can shop in anytime during the day. Students participating are Candice Adkins, Olivia Collins, Alicia Maynard, Trevor Payne, Kaitlyn B. Smith, Kaitlyn S. Smith, Meagan Smith, Cory Van Meter, and Natalie Welty.
The public is urged to support the students in their business venture; all proceeds go towards projects at the school to add school spirit to the facilities.
