The Board of Education recognized South Point High School students Charlie Tran, A.J. Robinson, and Nick Matthew for placing first in the North Carolina Stock Market Game. The students competed in the contest that focused on investing a hypothetical $100,000 in bonds, stocks, and mutual funds. The students’ wise decision-making resulted in a $60,571 profit, enough to earn the state championship over 312 other teams. Math teacher David Grimes is the team’s adviser.
