Kellenberg students in grades 9 through 11 have been learning the ins and outs of the business world through the Business and Finance Club. The club meets in the library after school alongside alumni and college professors to hold lectures on how students can enhance their knowledge in professional fields.
Kellenberg has also enhanced its club by partnering with Molloy College in Rockville Centre and offering informational courses. Junior, George Pappas, remarks, “I am hoping the course will continue to expose me to the world of business and give me a deeper insight on the ability to properly run a business.”
The Business and Finance Club consists of three branches. The main section of the club explores various elements of business like stocks, investments, and entrepreneurship. The second branch focuses on achieving Bloomberg Certification. Attaining this certification early on is extremely valuable in certain fields. Lastly, the third part incorporates college-level courses through Molloy College that can lead to students attaining three college credits.
Senior, Krystal Raymond, credits Business Club for developing her love for stocks, saying, “Through the club, I was able to learn about various business topics I am interested in such as the stock market.”
The club provides the Kellenberg students with the much-needed ability to focus on specific elements that they take interest in.
