Glenville State College Helps Elementary School Prepare for Annual Lemonade Stand Day

Posted: Updated:

Gilmer County Elementary students will soon get a lesson in starting their own business.

Glenville State College will work with Glenville Elementary School for the annual Lemonade Stand Day.

The event uses a common childhood activity to teach kids about business and entrepreneurship.

College staff said there's a lot the kids have to learn outside of the business world.

"We are teaching not only how to operate a business, but we're also teaching teamwork, leadership, organization, management skills that will not only benefit them if they happen to run a business and become an entrepreneur, but I think it will help them with their life skills as well,” said Cinda Echard, an Associate Professor.

Glenville Elementary Students will kick off Lemonade Day Tuesday afternoon.
