Lufkin Road Middle School technology teacher Jennifer Balgooyen turned a lesson about entrepreneurship into a tasty treat for her business marketing students. She took them to the Chirba Chirba Dumpling food truck at Centre Green in Cary on Friday.
As part of the business marketing unit of the entrepreneurship class at the Apex school, Balgooyens students researched and interviewed business owners about how they got started and how they market their companies. A trip to a food truck, which is a steadily growing business model in the Triangle, was a fun way to end the unit.
Small businesses run this country, Balgooyen said. What I would like them to see is the attainability of starting their own business. Staff Writer Aliana Ramos
