GSE is a highly competitive summer learning opportunity for students who are in grades 9th, 10th or 11th and are interested in the possibility of starting their own companies. The entrepreneurs attend a three week summer session, working in teams to develop a business from beginning to and including pitching their ideas to possible investors. Students enhance their skills in critical and creative thinking, communication, teamwork and more.

Through FCSI, he recently placed first in a competition for designing and constructing towers, J. D. likes to fish in his spare time.

Adkins concludes, “We love to see students go after challenges and excel. We hope you join us in congratulating J. D. and in encouraging students you know to take advantage of the amazing opportunities that are available to them in our district and in programs like GSE.  We’re excited to hear more from J.D. about GSE after his summer session and hope more students who are interested in the business world will follow his lead and apply for this opportunity.”
