Students in Henley Middle School's Entrepreneurial Program presented their business plans and actual products to local business leaders Monday.
Students created several different products, including a henna art company for women who lose their hair during cancer treatment: The art designs are for their head. Other products include a board game, Preppy & Pink, a clothing monogram business, a new computer app and Spark-Lite, which has to do with candles.
“We learned a lot about how to run a business: How to start a business, how to write a business plan, like creating a business, and all of the functional stuff like that,” said Zoe Clay, 8th grade student
The class offered by Henley is the only one of its type in the country that offers high school credit.
