Ayla Merendino (OHS class of 2022) is participating in a Junior Achievement program through her Lamar University education class. Ayla has spent the past few Wednesday afternoons with Mrs. Ponfick’s second grade class. Ayla has reviewed wants and needs with the class as well as introduced terms like consumer and producer. The students “opened” their own online pizza business that taught them the importance of following directions and doing things right the first time. The amount of money made was determined by each student’s accuracy when completing the pizza orders.
