Tunica Academy students get down to business
It all started with several boxes of books and a room full of young minds. From there, an idea was born that has grown into a first hand lesson in entrepreneurship.
Since early November, Big Blue Books has been operating as a vendor on Amazon.com. The book sellers, which are rated as five star merchants on the site, are 13 Tunica Academy General Business students and their teacher Evelyn McLean.
Sophomore Sam Melton said the business began as a way to raise money for the school by selling some donated books that were not being used. The class, which includes Cooper Brown, Maggie Gannaway, Jake Graves, Austin Hagstrom, Taylor Hagstrom, Samuel McGee, Melton, Shuna Rollins, Claire Schubert, Madison Smallwood, Taylor Watson, Latavia McKinney and Tyler Harris, soon decided that they need a specific item or prize that the funds could be used to purchase.
