You might recall Jill Beracki for the wonderful work she did at Washington High, where she led a strong performance by the team in the Stock Market Game. Well, guess what? She’s up to her old tricks, but this time at another school. She tells us the South Atlanta School of Law & Social Justice is the Regional Winner (City of Atlanta) for the Stock Market Game (first semester 2010-2011). This is the version played statewide and is sponsored by the Georgia Council on Economic Education (Georgia State University).
The game is played once per semester each school term, and more than 3,500 teams compete across Georgia, Beracki tells us. The state winner was Parkview High School in Gwinnett County.
“I believe this is the first time that South Atlanta High has ever had a winner,” Beracki says, giving credit to South Atlanta School of Law & Social Justice Peter McKnight.
The students will attend an awards ceremony in May at the Georgia Depot. The team features Donta Smith (captain) and teammates Amario Zachary and Brandon Jones.
