The Holston FBLA Club went to King University on November 22nd for a business workshop and campus tour. Dr. Pate, the Dean of the King
School of Business gave valuable insight into what it takes to start up your own business and become an entrepreneur. He said that King
University is planning to pilot a dual-enrollment business course for high school students in the fall of 2020. Students also learned that King
University participates in eSports and has a competitive program similar to the one that started at HHS earlier this semester.
Several students were asked for their comments on the field trip. Junior, Cameron R. appreciated the “Easy access to all surrounding buildings
and classrooms.” Senior Dawson V. and junior Keegan W. enjoyed watching the basketball team practice. Dawson also stated that he thought it was,
“Neat to learn about all the different academic and athletic programs offered at the school.” Senior Kloe H. and Sophomore Jesse M. added
that the “food in the dining hall was amazing.” Senior Abbey C. learned about the vegan diet offerings available in the cafeteria from the
Enrollment Counselor, Mr. Bosworth. This was a valuable learning experience which provided exposure to what college life is like for the 20 club members who took part in the
event. The Holston FBLA would like to thank King University for their outstanding hospitality.
