Technical education recently won big not only in manufacturing skills but in business, marketing, and economics!

Economics Pennsylvania, the largest not for profit organization to promote financial principles recently held its regional competition in entrepreneurial skills at the Northumberland National Bank Headquarters. The overall winner, pictured with his limo ride was Dylan Kratzer of Selinsgrove H.S. and SUN Area Technical Institute, where he is in The Advanced Precision Machining program. Dylan’s business plan, Final Flight Calls, LLC drew great reviews from the judges that were made up of bankers, business owners and marketing specialists. His simple-but-effective business entry was based on conservative start-up costs and prudent quarterly projections.
