CHS students start up their own business
Posted on 09/25/2015

Twelve Calhoun High School student entrepreneurs are serving up success at the campus coffee shop they started up as part of their Business Management class.

The student-run business called “The Claw” is open on Friday mornings between 7:15 and 7:50 a.m. Coffee, tea, frappuccino, school supplies and school spirit items are available at “The Claw” for students and staff to purchase and enjoy.

The concept of “The Claw” was developed last school year as a student business plan. The business plan became a reality after a senior-level business course was added to the high school’s Career and Technical Education course offerings for students interested in pursuing a career in business and industry.

 “This program is completely student-driven,” said CHS Business Teacher Michelle Grubert. “’The Claw’ and the business course is an example of how our CHS Career & Technical Education program is providing students with relevant, hands-on experiences that prepare them with the skills they need to be successful in their future careers.”

The class is responsible for every aspect of the store, including inventory, sales, accounting and marketing.

Students interested in taking business courses at CHS should contact their academic advisors for more information.
