Congratulations to three of our Scots for winning individual student awards at the first ever Junior Achievement Regional Final Competition!
 
Jonathan Spanier ‘16, won Best Sales Pitch, Lindsay Shagrin ’15 was awarded the Senior Scholarship, and Alex Heatzig ‘16 was named a Featured Fellow.
 
The event, held on Saturday, March 7 at JA World in Coconut Creek, was the culmination of six months of preparation as part of the Junior Achievement Fellows Program of South Florida (JA Fellows).

JA Fellows offers students an opportunity to run their own company with the support of business professionals and shark tank investors, as well as personal and team development software programs. Student entrepreneurs gain invaluable experience and learn real world business and leadership skills.

“It was a wonderful experience for our students to have the opportunity of creating a company, competing against other schools, and being recognized in three award areas. I was very proud of them and all of our JA students!”, stated Saint Andrew’s School Junior Achievement Fellows Faculty Advisor Dr. Carlos Barroso. 

As part of JA Fellows, Spanier, Shagrin, and Heatzig, along with 12 other Saint Andrew’s students, created a company called Students for Soldiers, whose mission is to provide people with an easy, affordable, yet caring way to give back to the men and women overseas who fight for freedom each and every day.

Specifically, the student group decided to create a care package distribution system to benefit soldiers. Each care package included snacks, personal necessities, and a personal note to the soldiers thanking them for their service.

Barroso added, “At Saint Andrew’s School, students are more and more gaining an appetite for experiencing entrepreneurship. They are hungry to learn about all aspects of business including:  finance, production, the marketing mix, customer service, as well as what it takes to lead, collaborate as a team, and inspire creativity. The JA Fellows program is a great platform for this type of learning.”

Congratulations to Zachary Sussman, '16 and Chenyang Sun, '18, who both qualified to take the American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). The AIME is a 15-question 3-hour test given since 1983 to those who rank in the top 5% (or score at least 100) on the AMC 12 high school mathematics contest and those who rank in the top 2.5% (or score at least 120) on the AMC 10.
 
The AIME is the second of two tests used to determine qualification for the United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO), the first being the AMC.

Go Scots!
