Bethesda Academy to get $100K donation from South State

Posted By on Wed, Aug 13, 2014 at 5:38 PM

South State Bank will present Bethesda Academy with a $100,000 check for the establishment of the South State Bank Center for Young Entrepreneurship.

According to a spokesman, the Center "in conjunction with Bethesda’s Work-Study curriculum, aims to teach principles of sound business development, financial management, and integrity in the workplace to the students of Bethesda Academy."

The work-study portion of the program will grade students on their actual labor in the workplace and students will build a portfolio of their work while in the program.

"Every student will graduate knowing what it takes to run a business – integrity, discipline, responsibility, accountability, critical thinking – as well as understanding how to write and implement a business plan."

Originally founded in 1740, Bethesda Academy is the oldest child caring institute in America.
