Learning Village students Zara Craig '23 and Isabel Humphreys '23 were recently named regional winners of the 2017 – 2018 Stock Market Game. The team, advised by Grade 7 math teacher Melissa Phillips, began with a hypothetical $100,000 and, after selecting investments, increased that to $105,911.52 after 11 weeks. A separate team of Nolan Burkhart '23 and Jack Dozier '23 also participated.
The Stock Market Game competition is conducted each year by the Virginia Council on Economic Education. All regional winners will be recognized at a reception at the James Madison University (JMU) Center for Economic Education on May 17.
