Special to the Herald-Zeitung
Several students recently participated in the Junior Achievement Program at Canyon High School.
Junior Achievement Inc. is a non-profit organization financed by businesses, foundations and individuals. The purpose is to educate and inspire young people to value free enterprise, business and economics to improve the quality of their lives.
Members of Canyon High School’s economics classes recently developed companies and marketed products to learn business techniques first-hand. The program taught students how to organize and operate a business enterprise.
The Canexas company produced antique boards with classic slogans including “Grandmas are just antique little girls” and “Daddy’s little girl.” The company motto was ‘There are no problems in life, only new challenges.” The students/owners/workers used their imaginations to come up with clever slogans and sold the boards for $4.50 each.
TexCan produced the ‘Texas Candle” which was sold at Granzin’s Dancing Bear and Rustic Ranch. Each candle was individually hand-crafted by students in the company. The students recycled all the byproducts of the cedar logs to avoid any waste. The candles were sold for $10 each.

Each athlete solicits pledges for each pound that he can lift. An athlete also can collect donations from individuals. Prizes will be awarded to the top lifter in each of the five weight
classes, as well as to the individuals and teams that bring in the most contributions. Money raised will be used to reduce the debt on the weightroom expansion of the Unicorn Fieldhouse. It will also be used to buy new weight equipment for the weightroom and to make improvements to the fieldhouse.
