In the overall competition which included the development of a marketing plan and three rounds of individual sales presentations----we were the only school with both students finishing in the top five.

Dr. Dorene Ciletti mentored our school team and provided outstanding leadership to our highly motivated students. Kudos to Ms. Nist, Ms. Wynn and Dr. Ciletti.
