Congratulations to all of them for their professional achievements.
Students in economics class
get valuable experience
Who says doing homework doesn’t pay? It paid well for three students in
Dr. Larry Dale’s “Economics Issues and Concepts” class. As a class
assignment, the students wrote essays on business ethics for a national
competition sponsored by the Pilgrim Foundation and the Americanism
Education League. Out of 3,000 essays submitted, one written by Andre
M. Beale of Colt won first place and a $5,000 cash prize. Beale is a
physical education major. Megan Swan of Piggott, a journalism major,
won third place and $1,500, and Courtney Rowe of Stamps, a chemistry
major, won sixth place and $500. The special topic for the essays was,
“Under What Conditions is it Necessary for a Publicly Traded Company to
Inform the Investment Community of a Conflict of Interest.”
Congratulations also go, of course, to Larry Dale. Although his
students have placed in the competition in previous years, Andre was the
first to win first place.
achievements are important
The item about Dr. Larry Dale's
students is an excellent example of the quality work our students are
