Paul Bryson and James Klein (pictured left) both seniors at Rock Canyon High School and 80108 residents, scored among the top in the nation on rigorous exams to test their business knowledge. Bryson and Caleb Hester (currently attending the University of Northern Colorado) earned the highest test scores in the nation on the Principles of Finance exam. Klein scored the highest in the nation on the Business Economics exam.
The exams are part of RCHS’s High School of Business program (HSB), a national accelerated business administration program. More than 8,000 students from across the nation participated in the program this school year which is designed for college-bound students with interest in business administration careers such as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, or management.
HSB teacher Janna Robinett said, “These students have worked very hard to get this recognition.” Bryson commented, “The program has been great, and it is a testament to Mrs. Robinett’s teaching that I knew the material well enough that I didn’t have to study that hard going into the test.” For more information about the national organization, visit www.MBAResearch.org and click on the HS of Business tab.
