Albemarle Students Develop Business Strategies

Posted: Updated:

Some students in Albemarle County are getting a taste of the real world. Students at Henley Middle School got the chance to develop their own business strategy.

Monday, they shared those plans with fellow students and school leaders. Area business owners, who shared their expertise throughout the year, also joined the presentations.

Students and teachers say it's a lot more hands-on than typical classes.

Eighth-grader Zoe Clay said, "Since we got to think of our own business plan, it was stuff that we were interested in, it was really nice because then it was more interesting and something you picked yourself and that you really had enthusiasm about researching.”

Clay proposed a henna tattoo shop for women with breast cancer. She took her design plan to class with her Monday.
