It’s never too early to learn about fiscal responsibility – and while that may not be a part of a normal high school curriculum, Middleburg High is making sure its students get a dose of reality. On November 7th, the school hosted its first Vystar Academy of Business and Entrepreneurship Reality Fair where students learned about budgeting, taxes, and credit while making real-world financial decisions. Students visited booths like “I Want It All Mall” and “Living Large Real Estate Services” where they could “purchase” goods and services.
B&C Director of Investment Management, Sean Guldi, manned the “Life Happens” booth, where students drew cards with scenarios that would affect them financially. This helped students plan for the ups and downs of life. Sean really enjoyed interacting with the students and helping them understand the real-life impact of their financial decisions.
