For five weeks this summer, 36 high school students had the chance to learn what the college experience is like.
The students were part of the Governor’s School for Information Technology Leadership at Tennessee Tech University. Throughout their time at Tech, the students lived in TTU dorms, took two TTU classes and learned how to write a business plan. In the end, they left with a memorable experience and six hours of college credit.
Katherine Cole of South Doyle High School, Janelle Graves, Bhavya Paranthaman, Avanti Rangnekar and Brianna Stockdale all of Farragut High School, and Bradley Sewell of Berean Christian High School were chosen to participate in the program.
The students were divided into six groups with six students per group. Each group developed a complete business plan for an information-technology oriented company.
