NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE

TEACHERS WORKSHOP

Joy Munsey, busine
ss teacher from Holston High School, Washington County Public Schools
, one of 47 fellowship
recipients, participated in the New York Stock Exchange Euronext Teachers Workshop this summer. The NYSE
Teachers Workshop, now in its 26
th

year, is an annual program held in conjunction with the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission’s (SEC) Office of Investor Education and Advocacy that helps approximately 200 teachers
each year from across the United States educate students on the financi
al marketplace and its importance in their
lives and the global economy.


For the last two years, the program has provided fellowship grants to enable under
-
resourced teachers to
participate in the program, and 47 fellowships were awarded this year. The N
YSE Teacher Workshop is designed to
give educators a thorough understanding of the capital
-
raising process, market structure, technology used in
today’s trading, financial products and regulation. The five
-
day workshop included a tour of the Museum of
Ame
rican Finance, speakers from the NYSE floor (brokers and dedicated market makers), NYSE business offices
such as marketing and human resources, and Lawrence Leibowitz, Chief Operating Officer of New York Stock
Exchange, spoke with the teachers. Teachers v
isited the trading floor more than once during the week to hear and
see what transpires on a daily basis

T.C. Williams Entrepreneur Student Wins Second Prize in National Business Plan Competition

Last spring, T.C. Williams High School junior Dagim Girma presented his business plan at the Washington Area Network for
Teaching Entrepreneur
ship (NFTE) Competition, where he won the first
-
place award of $1,500 and advanced to the national
contest. In October, in New York City, Girma competed against the top 38 NFTE nationwide high school students and won
the $5,000 overall second
-
place award.

Additionally, as a finalist in the Elevator Pitch Competition, he won $500 and two
tickets on Southwest Airlines.


A sports fan and enthusiast for as long as he can remember, Girma took that passion, coupled with his fondness for social
media, to his En
trepreneur class last year at T.C. Williams. He created the web site and cell phone app called
The Audible
.
The venture enables sports fans to act as "Monday Morning quarterbacks" and write, post and share their own
sports
articles. After six months in business, Girma has 50 writers submitting content and more than 5,000 unique visitors per
month at his site.


Girma's presentation of The Audible at the local competition won the support and praise of local entreprene
urs such as the
founder of Blackboard and representatives of Alexandria
-
based companies Travel Onion and The Motley Fool. When he
presented his plan in front of hundreds of high
-
level business executives in New York City, he received a standing ovation.

Currently, Girma is a senior at T.C. Williams, where he serves as president of the school's DECA student organization and
manager of the Titan School Store.
