Woodstock High School students are economics state champions!
A team of four seniors won first-place statewide in the Georgia Council of Economic Education’s Georgia Personal Finance Challenge. They now head to the national competition in May!
To win the Challenge, team members seniors Andrew Brandenburg, Malachi Brewer, Matthew Garcia and Michael Rehman were tasked with using a case study to create different viable methods to improve the families’ personal finance. They are coached by teacher, Josh Sailers, who last school year was named by the Council as Georgia’s top economics teacher!
The team will be recognized at an Atlanta Braves baseball game in April and by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the Board’s Jan. 17 meeting.
