Long hours and strategic planning pays off in business

“I thought there was no way I would win. It felt like a really long wait until finally they called ‘Tech savyage by Oliver Miner.’ My reaction was such a cliche with my hands over my face, my mouth wide open. It was a moment to remember, I was thinking to myself, I finally won at LNI’s, and those nights when I stayed late — once til 9:40 — really paid off. I was also really thankful for Ms. Henson. If it wasnt for her help and pushing me, I probably wouldn’t have a business plan,” Miner said.

“My business plan for LNI was the Curl & Cut Hair Salon, and I’ve been working on that plan alone for three years, fixing it up, adding things on, but this year, I took second place in the senior division, getting a $1000 scholarship,” said Fallyn Cloud Eagle. C-EB teacher Peg Henson takes students to the annual Business Plan Competition at LNI. Henson helps students prepare their plans throughout the semester for multiple competitions in the winter months.
