  • Entrepreneurial and Management Classes w/ Ms. Sejka

    Posted by Dan Mott at 4/10/2014

     

    Class
     
    On April 4th the students of Ms. Sejka’s Entrepreneurship and Management class conducted a unique project with Mr. Ference. (Mr. Ference is a local entrepreneur who comes in every Friday to give the class insight into what it is like to be an entrepreneur.)  Every student received a card with a different profile for a business that is known for selecting different competitive advantages but also known for successfully implementing and maintaining those advantages over time. Each student was told to imagine that their entrepreneurial organization they were provided has been nominated to participate in the Competitive Advantage Hall of Fame. The students designed posters that promote their assigned company for the Competitive Advantage Hall of Fame. Students emphasized the specific information provided in their profiles, such as the company name, a brief description of the company, facts about the company’s specific competitive advantages, how it implements them, and how it enforces them. They also created a unique and attractive design to promote their poster.

    Ms. Sejka’s Entrepreneurship and Management class is fun, unique, and full of experiences. With the help of Mr. Ference, many students have enjoyed their experiences in this class and had an amazing year.

    Posted by Dan Mott at 3/31/2014
    Ms. Katie Schneck had the pleasure of attending the Ohio Key Club District Leadership Convention with 12 of our students, as well as over three hundred students from across the state. Our SHS students did a fantastic job of representing Strongsville High School. We even received a few awards that she wanted to share with you.
     
    Senior Salman Arif was awarded with the Governor's Excellence Award for his work this past year as Lieutenant Governor of District 24. He has done a great job of leading both our club and our district, and he is very deserving of this honor.
     
    Junior Venkat Tondapu won first place in the talent show for his comedic performance as "Kid Curry" as well as his Key-Club pick up lines. Ask him for a demo if you want a laugh!
     
    Also, Sophomore Maheera Syed was elected as the Secretary/Treasurer for the entire Ohio District for next year. She went through a rigorous election process, including caucuses and intense questioning sessions, and we are so proud of her and know she will succeed next year.

     Jennifer Huryn - 2014 State Gymnastics Coach of the Year
     
    The following came in recently from Mr. Moses, SHS Athletic Director: "We are so happy for Jen upon being recognized with this award.  She is one of the most positive minded coaches but has a competitive nature about her.  She addresses the students and interacts with them on an individual basis while providing the opportunity for everyone on the team a chance to contribute."  
     
    "Our gymnastics program has been very successful over the years  There is a slogan that goes like "when you do the right things, success will follow".  Sound fundamentals, healthy choices, self-control, and student participants having fun while competing are all evident in this program under Coach Huryn."
