At the May 4 Herricks Board of Education meeting, 14 Herricks High School Virtual Enterprise students were recognized for advancing to the final round in the Virtual Enterprise National QuickBooks Competition and the National Championship round of the Oral Business Plan Presentation Competition.
The eight students who advanced to the final round of the National QuickBooks Competition were: Michael Joseph, Gavin Lee, Guojie Ni, Shristi Nigam, Nicholas Pappalardo, Ammar Patel, Sartaj Singh and Noah Tesch. As part of their presentation, they presented a five-minute oral presentation to a panel of judges. Their presentation included a brief company overview, how the students structured the internal controls of the company, as well as a walk-through of the company’s profit and loss statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement.
The six students who advanced in the Oral Business Plan presentation were: Jocelyn Chiu, Connie Huang, Carolyn Lau, Lauren Lui, Joshua Park and Lauren Tran. Those students presented a 10-minute oral presentation that covers their entire business plan.
The district extends congratulations to all on this wonderful accomplishment.
