It’s our final grant spotlight of 2014! We’re proud to feature Southwest Public School, which earned a $5,000 grant to help students learn valuable entrepreneurial skills.

The grant will help the school to purchase a PlasmaCAM cutting system.  The school will use the new equipment to convert its metal shop classes into a student-run business capable of creating professional quality metal products.  The new program will provide students the chance to learn management, accounting, manufacturing and distribution skills in a real-world setting.

Entrepreneurship is on the rise, particularly in rural America thanks to advances in Internet access and other technology.  This is the third student-run business that we have funded with our grant program.  Other student-run businesses that have received support from us include the Arnold School House Graphics Program.
