Kennedy Creates Business Owners
Kennedy Learning Center Micro-Businesses hosted a breast cancer fundraiser at the October Board of Education meeting.
The Micro-Businesses are student-run companies offering various products and services to the community while providing our students hands on opportunities to lead, develop career skills and experience entrepreneurship.
The students created scarves, candy dishes, pink chocolate covered popcorn and breast cancer awareness ribbons. Kennedy Learning Center teaches the students to always do their best. "Our products are not always perfect, but created with pride and determination," shared Tonya Hickman, Kennedy Learning Center principal.
