Entrepreneurship Project Leads to Items for Sale in Local Shop

It was a long road, by it has finally come to fruition. The Northwood T-Shirt Team has a deal!  The project took off at the beginning of this year when Mrs. Jill Walker commented that Northwood’s Peak T-Shirts, given to each student at the beginning of the school year with a design featuring the name of their peak, could be sold in local stores. A group of students in the Entrepreneurship class then took this idea to raise money for the school’s LEAP programs. After trial and error, the T-Shirt Team has finally secured an exclusive deal with Imagination station.

The shirts turned out gorgeous, and the fabric is top-notch. For the designs, the students chose the topographical maps of Marcy, Cascade, Giant, and Whiteface, as the first three are the most climbed peaks in the Adirondacks, and Whiteface is the biggest skiing mountain in the area.

The t-shirts will go on sale around the middle of May. So before you head home for summer, don’t forget to stop by Imagination Station in Downtown Lake Placid. Not only will you have a souvenir to take back with you, but you will also be doing good for the Northwood community.

Further details on the exact launch date will be announced in a future Northwood Mirror article as well as on Northwood’s Facebook and Twitter.
