Pine Bluffs Students Open Business
Some students at Pine Bluffs Junior-Senior High are getting a hands-on lesson in business. Students in the school's chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America recently received a $20,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to start their own engraving business. Adviser Mary Jacobsen says the grant supplied money for startup costs like the engraving machine and some of the materials needed. Jacobsen says that the endeavor will help teach business skills to the students. The Daniels Fund offers grants for several different kinds of educational projects, including financial literacy. At Pine Bluffs, students will be responsible for writing the business plan, along with managing things like advertising, operations and bookkeeping.
