Southern Splash (White Knoll High School) Reaches New Heights


At the 2013 VEI Youth Summit’s National Business Plan Competition held at the McGraw Hill Company headquarters 21 VEI teams, representing the 500+ VEI firms from around the country, made executive presentations to business leaders from Fortune 500 companies.  White Knoll High School excelled in the preliminary rounds and, along with Greer High School, was announced as one of six finalists.  This was a “first” and major accomplishment for our state. The six finalists presented for the last time to a panel of nine judges and answered a wide variety of questions pertaining to their business operations.

The winners were announced at the opening ceremony of the International Trade Show Thursday, April 11. White Knoll HS (Southern Splash) was named as the 3rd Place National Winner…another first for South Carolina and White Knoll. The team members included Andrew Roof, Kames Davis, Christina Bradshaw, Brittany Buckner, Brandon Shull, and Jaime Luevano.  Each student received a Kindle Fire HD as his or her award.
