Both Ms. Rutiri and Ms. Southall are YEScarolina Certified Entrepreneurship Teachers.

Students enjoyed a tour of the facility and informative presentations from the owners, Michael and Melody Shemtov.

Additional presenters included an entrepreneur, Lee Deas, from Oblivouslee Marketing, a local business that excels in web design and public relations.

Just when the students thought the presentations for the day and concluded, they got a surprise visit from a Top Chef participant in Charleston, Sylva Senat (http://www.bravotv.com/people/sylva-senat).File_000(2)
