NHS teams will take stock in contest

Forget Bears or Bulls, next week will be a Dragon market.

Two juniors and seven seniors from Nacogdoches High School will participate Oct. 22 in Junior Achievement’s Student Stock Market Challenge event.

Schools from around East Texas will send teams to Lufkin’s Pitser Garrison Convention Center.

The nine NHS students make up three teams that will compete in the challenge. They include, Juniors Stuart Beal and Kami Hathaway and seniors Kealy Hathaway, Kristine Maulion, Jerry Moreno, Adrian Pitts, Alex Presley, Fariha Sultana and Alex Taaffe. Economics teacher Megan Rudisill is advising the teams.

In preparation for the competition, students are going through five classroom sessions that are part of Take Stock in Your Future. By the end of those lessons, students will be prepared to compete in the stock market competition.

On the day of the event, students and staff will arrive at the convention center in Lufkin at 8 a.m. The opening bell rings at 9 a.m. to start trading. Winners will be announced by 11:15 a.m.
