Last week ninth graders from Ms. Perry's class had a special guest - Crystal Smith, Director of Cooperative Extension in Warren County. The students are interested in selling their produce to Warrenton Restaurants and community members, so must learn the basics of business and create their own business plan. Through engaging activities, Ms. Smith was able to demonstrate the importance of setting attainable goals and delivering a quality product every time. Miss Smith will return in the future to formulate a business plan with students. In the mean time, the team will discuss plans for marketing, growing, and distributing their produce. Thank you Ms. Smith for sharing your business expertise!
