BCHS Named 'Blue Star' School
Beach Channel High School was honored as a "Blue Star" school for the second year in a row.
Over 50 students at the high school became financially literate when they took the WISE Financial Literary Exam this past May, and 98 percent of them passed. Out of 139 participating schools, only 45 were awarded "Blue Star" status for excellence in financial literacy. Only ten of those 45 schools, including Beach Channel, received the award for the second year in a row.
Economics teacher Ezra Hershman took part in the celebratory conference this past Election Day, and was proud to receive the honor on behalf of the students and fellow Economics teacher, Christian Horn. "This is what makes teaching worthwhile," Hershman said. "Not everything can be measured in dollars and cents."
