ACS Raiders' Success

Since September, 6 Assumption students participated in the first ever WEC entrepreneurship event. 

In total, over 250 students from the region attended a series of workshops and seminars to help them develop business skills.

The three groups from ACS all advanced to last week's final event at the WECDSB office and presented a "Dragon's Den" style pitch to a panel of judges and audience of nearly 200 people.

The Raider groups did extremely well, with Kegun Morkin placing 4th, Jaggar Ford-Klein & Joseph Mati in 2nd and Brandon Defausses, Anda Silvestru and Diana Silvestru earning FIRST PLACE honours. 

The three groups also won a total of $7500 to help further grow their brands. 

The event was televised and local cable and the Raiders made a huge impression.

Big thanks to Mr. Bracken for his guidance, Mrs. Bentley for her ongoing support and leadership in the project, the teachers who supported these students as well and all who voted in the online video component of the event.
