Intro to Business Goes Global

Students in Intro to Business are currently learning about conducting business around the globe.  Each student researched a multinational company (MNC) including the date the company was founded, the products/services offered, the location of the headquarters, and additional world-wide locations. Students marked the location of their MNCs on a world map posted in the classroom. Ali Ketterhagen discovered that America is not the only country that runs on Dunkin'. So does Oman! With over 3,100 stores in 30 countries outside of the U.S., Dunkin' Donuts has been serving customers internationally for over 40 years.

Girls Claim Regional Title, Schumacher Reaches 1000

The Whippets pulled through in the showdown between two undefeated, state-ranked teams, defeating Lakeside Lutheran 69-61 on Saturday night. Lakeside jumped out with the hot hand 22-15, but the Whippets rallied back to take the lead by 3 going into the half. Kailey Reynolds stepped up big in the scoring column with 20 points, scoring 11 in the 4th quarter, including 3 threes. Three other players reached double figures on the way to grabbing the Regional Title. Rebekah Schumacher had 16, Myriama Smith-Traore added 14, and Sarah Schumacher scored 13. Melani Martinez hit two clutch free throws with under a minute to play. The Whippets will take on Brodhead Thursday evening, at 7:00, at Fort Atkinson High School.

During Saturday's game, Sarah Schumacher reached an historic individual milestone in scoring 13 points, giving her 1002 total career points. Sarah is now only the 3rd player in Whitewater High School history to reach the 1000 career point plateau behind Brooke Trewyn and Kristi Pease. Because it was a WIAA Regional Game when the milestone was reached and to not take away from the Team celebration after the game, the focus remained on the Whippets’ hard fought victory over the talented Lakeside Lutheran opponent. Coach Judy Harms stated afterwards that, “Sarah especially is not about individual stats, so it’s totally ironic but fitting that this would be a time an individual milestone was overshadowed by the biggest win of the year thus far.” Sarah is pictured with the game ball from the Regional Final victory with her parents Dave and Brenda Schumacher and Coach Judy Harms.

 

Pair Attends Global Youth Summit

Senior Zachary Popke and Junior Sarah Ziolkowski attended The Wisconsin Global Youth Summit at UW Madison on Saturday, February 28. They and over 160 other students from all over Wisconsin discussed global citizenry as well as learned about culture through language and dance. In another session, teachers Kate Kolak and Greg Stewart met with other teachers and discussed Wisconsin Global Scholar competencies and how to offer global educational opportunities to all students in order that they earn a Global Scholar endorsement upon graduation.
