Notable: Kaitlyn earned a full scholarship to the Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week at Lycoming College in Williamsport during the week of July 6. During the week, student companies simulate the actual operation of their own businesses for the equivalent of three years. Business volunteers serve as company advisors who mentor the students as they face many of the decisions real executives confront. The companies will compete against each other.
Quote: "It's a business camp for students interested in business. Business owners and CEOs will give seminars, and we will start up a pretend business and see how successful it is. I was excited when I found out. I'm interested in majoring in business in college, and I thought this would be a good way to find out if it is really what I want to do."
