Undergrads educate local youth

Last year, 34 UD students went to town with their education. More specifically, they visited local schools to teach students the basic principles of business.

The University students, who were honored on Sept. 29 by Junior Achievement of Dayton and the Miami Valley for their commitment, worked for seven weeks last spring.

Junior Andre Crawford, an operations management major, used vocabulary and games to teach a group of fourth-graders concepts such as supply and demand.

Crawford first became interested in the Junior Achievement program when economics professor Barbara John mentioned it in class. Initially drawn at the prospect of earning an extra academic credit, Crawford says he had a great time with the program and is planning to volunteer again this spring.

Despite a busy schedule that includes football, Crawford balances his time to include the volunteer work.

“I managed it and I’m glad I did,” he says. “I took away a lot from it. “
