Panther Plaza has opened. This is a big event in the school’s history. This is the first store the Panthers have ever had. A number of guests showed up for the grand opening. The Chamber of Commerce and a bank showed up and congratulated the students at their big opening. Panther Plaza is now the place to get all your “Panther Merch.” All the work was done by students from the Small Business Operations and Marketing classes who report that a lot of work went into the store. They say first they picked out and ordered the merchandise. Then the room had to be cleaned and organized. It used to be a storage room. They also had to learn how to ring up the sales.

All of the work except some actual construction of walls was done by students. Students that have taken or are taking those two classes can sign up to work for the store. Three to four students work every day at the store. These students also work at basketball and football home games because the students also got a kiosk to display and sell at the games. Ms. Love, the teacher guiding the effort says this store teaches students business skills and gives the students a good work ethic. Mallory Porter, one of the student clerks, said, “This job offered me various job skills for the future.”  For those who want to have the latest merchandise, Ms. Love says the store posts to Facebook and Instagram.
