NORTH ROCKLAND ACADEMY OF FINANCE

ELLIE AND DIRK'S FIRST INTEREST IN WHK STARTED IN HIGH SCHOOL. WHILE THEY BOTH WORKED AT THE COMPANY, ELLIE ALSO ENROLLED IN COLLEGE LEVEL BUSINESS CLASSES THROUGH NORTH ROCKLAND HIGH SCHOOL'S ACADEMY OF FINANCE. THE SEED WAS PLANTED...

SO, IT ONLY MAKES SENSE THAT WHEN NRHS' ACADEMY OF FINANCE ASKED US TO HOST A STUDENT INTERESTED IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP WE JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY! LAST WEEK HIGH SCHOOL JUNIOR, PAOLA ALVEREZ, JOINED ELLIE KASSNER ON A "DAY IN THE LIFE" OF AN ENTREPRENEUR AS THEY ATTENDED AN EVENT, "OVERCOMING HURDLES" PUT ON BY TAPPAN ZEE CONSTRUCTORS, VISITED THE WHK FACILITIES AND COMPLETED A WALK THRU OF A RECENTLY COMPLETED JOB. ELLIE ALSO GAVE A PRESENTATION ON ENTREPRENEURSHIP TO THE SENIOR CLASS EARLIER IN THE WEEK.  

WE'VE MENTIONED BEFORE THAT GIVING BACK IS SOMETHING WE VALUE HERE AT WHK, BUT IT'S PARTICULARLY SWEET TO BE ABLE TO BE INVOLVED WITH ORGANIZATIONS THAT DIRECTLY HELPED OUR ORGANIZATION THRIVE.
