Truman High School marketing students were treated to a unique experience at the recent business forum at Crystal Gardens.
After completing their business plans and wrapping up the 12 segments of marketing in class, the keynote speaker, CEO of Biggby Coffee Bob Fish, was a perfect way to end the unit.
Our students received a delicious lunch and were able to network with Downriver officials on business and marketing. During the question-and-answer session, the guest speaker said Cindy Nyarko's question is the best one he has ever seen at a business forum (see picture of her question attached).
The 9 students who earned the chance to go were Alondra Castaneda, Sara Sherazi, Tiffany Timpf, Austin Gignac, Josh Myles, Cindy Nyarko, Meghan Hontz, Gabriella Sanchez, and Marissa Johnson. These students have A’s in marketing class, are leaders as school store managers, and some even attended district, state, and national competition for DECA.
We want to thank Councilwoman Angela Croft for sponsoring our table and Truman HS Principal Melissa Skopcynzski for providing us with this opportunity. It was an amazing learning opportunity for Truman marketing students, not just for the state NOCTI test and classroom curriculum, but also for their DECA competitions.
