Eighteen Columbus Public high school students successfully completed the Rotary Enterprise Academy. The students have been working with the Columbus Rotary and ImageOhio Dominican University’s business Professor Dr. John Grant, to learn about the free enterprise system. In February, the students were on Ohio Dominican’s campus for classroom sessions on business. In March, these students completed field experiences where they were hosted in teams by area businesses and Columbus Rotarians. During these company visits, the students studied company mission statements, organizational structures, marketing practices and other concepts discussed in the classroom sessions. 

The final group presentations were delivered on Monday, March 25. In this session the students shared with the audience and the other student groups what they learned in their field experience. This session marked the completion of this year’s program and the students were awarded a Business elective credit from Ohio Dominican University. After the presentations, the students enjoyed dinner together.
