ACS Raiders' Success

Since September, 6 Assumption students participated in the first ever WEC entrepreneurship event. 

In total, over 250 students from the region attended a series of workshops and seminars to help them develop business skills.

The three groups from ACS all advanced to last week's final event at the WECDSB office and presented a "Dragon's Den" style pitch to a panel of judges and audience of nearly 200 people.

The Raider groups did extremely well, with Kegun Morkin placing 4th, Jaggar Ford-Klein & Joseph Mati in 2nd and Brandon Defausses, Anda Silvestru and Diana Silvestru earning FIRST PLACE honours. 

The three groups also won a total of $7500 to help further grow their brands. 

The event was televised and local cable and the Raiders made a huge impression.
