The Impact, and Where They Are Now
Owner of Set On Fire Marketing | UHART Alumna

AOBF Alumni, Class of 2017
My entire high school career wouldn't have been the same without the impact of programs like the Academy of Business & Finance. I learned so much valuable information as far as the field I would later enter, and skills in the areas of personal finance, career professionalism, and LIFE that put me ahead once I got to college and entered the workforce. All of the coursework, amazing guest speakers, internship opportunities, and dedicated teachers and WBL staff are what made me realize I could do anything I set my mind to.
