GRHS freshman takes top spot
GRHS freshman Laura Yuan is national first place winner in InvestWrite competition
The Glen Rock Board of Education's public meeting on April 13 included a presentation by the SIFMA Foundation, recognizing the amazing accomplishment of freshman Laura Yuan in being selected as the national first place winner in its InvestWrite essay competition. The program challenges 4th through 12th grade students across the country to analyze an investment scenario and recommend portfolio allocations targeting short- and long-term financial goals. The competition serves as a culminating activity for nearly 600,000 students nationwide who compete in The Stock Market Game each year. Congratulating Laura (second from right) on her achievement are (from left) Superintendent Dr. Paula Valenti, BOE Vice-president Sanjiv Ohri, GRHS Principal John Arlotta, SIFMA representative Esi Gillo and GRHS Business teacher Samara Fluster.
