Wheatland-Chili Business Students Participate in Stock Market Challenge

Ten Wheatland-Chili High School students competed in the first Junior Achievement Stock Market Challenge. Students prepared for the competition, over several weeks, by attending after-school sessions with Business Teacher Denise Hourihan and Jeffrey McCormack, a financial advisor, to learn about the stock market and investing.
The competition was held at Kodak Center, which was set up to resemble the floor of a stock exchange with giant screens showing news, stock prices, and standings. Each team of three or four students began with $1 million and tried to turn their investments into profit. “It was a fast-paced, exciting environment for students,” said Hourihan. “Although the Wheatland-Chili teams did not place in the top three teams, our school had the highest average return out of all participating schools with over $1,284,000.” Most of the students who participated are members of the Wheatland-Chili High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).
Congratulations to Mrs. Hourihan and students: Dallas Wilson, Shane Susuico, Haley Seaman, Desmond Walker, Aubrey Sheffield, Cory Collinge, Aaryana Young, Justin Gross, Siraya Johnson, and Olivia Youmans. Submitted photo
