Graves Eagles Unlimited w/5 Golden years

The Graves County High School Eagles’ Unlimited store has been awarded Gold Re-Certification for 2012 by the International Career Development Conference. The Graves County Chapter of the Distributive Education Clubs of America operates the “School-Based Enterprise.” Of approximately 1,500 school stores across the country, only 137 were awarded Gold Certification/Re-Certification this year. Katelyn Poindexter (left) and Hannah Pyle are the students who prepared the chapter’s application. They will attend the conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, in April, along with teacher/chapter advisor Stephanie Stanfill. They will participate in the SBE Academy, where they will learn school store best practices from more than 130 of the nation’s top school stores. ICDC officials wrote in a letter to GCHS, “We strongly feel that the certified school stores are among the best learning labs for our Business and Marketing Education programs across the country. We also realize that your support for the school store is essential, so we want to thank you for allowing your DECA chapter to utilize this powerful teaching tool to enhance the marketing program at your school.”
