Photo/Scott Foley edge@Wharton High School (KWHS) Investment Competition, a global investment simulation for high schoolers. The student-led team, called Dollar Tiger$, was the only finalist from Pennsylvania and one of just six from the United States out of over 300 entries. Sophomore Vanessa Huang was the founder of this 50 percent female team, which is a stand-out ratio for finance, a field in which more than 90 percent of senior roles are held by men. While the team didn’t win the competition, they were commended for both their investment strategy and their team dynamics. The KWHS Investment Competition was created to provide a unique and interactive learning experience for students and introduce them to possible college and career interests. Students learn about teamwork, communication, risk, diversification, company analysis, industry analysis and investing, and practice strategic thinking, analysis, and collaboration. Each team manages a portfolio of $100,000 in virtual cash for a “client” over the course of 10 weeks using Wharton’s online trading and investment simulator (OTIS). The finale included a comprehensive final investment policy and presentation to a panel of investment experts and included teams from the U.S., Brazil, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany, Norway, Romania, Switzerland, United Kingdom, China, Indian, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, and the United Arab Emirates.

Five Delaware County students were among the first to earn degrees in Social Work from Neumann University – Laila Sheriff, Amirah Guerrero, Nicole Strofe, Carla D’Angelo, and Kezia Mathew. mong the more than 650 students who graduated from Neumann University on May 12 were some undergraduate trailblazers. Eleven students received the first degrees in Social Work ever awarded by the university, and five of them are residents of Delaware County. The Delco graduates are Carla D’Angelo (Media), Amirah Guerrero (Aldan), Kezia Mathew (Lansdowne), Laila Sheriff (Upper Darby), and Nicole Strofe (Drexel Hill). All are students who were already at Neumann when the program was launched and who changed majors to study Social Work. “These students saw Social Work as an opportunity and a good fit for them,” explained Andrea Murphy, program director. She came to Neumann to start the Social Work major in the fall of 2015. Murphy and Rina Keller, director of field placement, provided the academic and practical experience that resulted in five of the 11 graduates securing full-time jobs in the field and five others gaining admission to graduate school programs before they graduated. During the first three years of the major, Murphy and Keller also achieved program accreditation from the Council on Social Work Education. Field placements for the students were at organizations like Delaware County Children and Youth Services, Chester Community Charter School, the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County, and Catholic Social Services.

Founder and president of The Amoore Group, Reneé Amoore, will speak Wednesday, May 23, 2018 at Yangming Restaurant in Bryn Mawr. An engaged member of the NAACP, the American Legion Auxiliary, the National Association of Women Business Owners and the Drexel University Board of Trustees, Reneé has served literally dozens of professional and community organizations. She was named Deputy Chair of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, and in 2004 became the first African-American female to chair a Pennsylvania delegation to the Republican National Convention. Published in 2007, her tome to help women succeed entitled, “The Elevator of Achievement,” offered strategies for performance management and organizational leadership centered on vision and attitude. Trained as a Registered Nurse, with a Master’s degree from Antioch College, Reneé rose from head emergency room nurse at Harlem Hospital, to program coordinator at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, to Chief Operating Officer of Growth Horizons, where she introduced innovative treatments for persons with mental illness, addictive disorders and mental retardation. In 1996, Reneé launched Amoore Health Systems to improve the delivery and quality of healthcare in America – and now in South Africa, too. In 1999, Amoore created 521 Management to provide strategic communications services in the areas of government affairs, public relations, community outreach and corporate training. That same year, she launched the non-profit Ramsey Educational Development Institute to assist children and adults with readiness and social survival skills. The “Tasty Talk” luncheon will begin at 12:30 p.m. with passed hors d’oeuvres, then continue with the special presentation by Ms. Amoore and then continues on with the entrée course and ends with a delicious dessert course, all prepared by the award-winning chefs of Yangming and all for only $20 (which includes tax and tip) for each pre-registered guest. Please note that walk-ins will be charged $25 and the prix fixe price does not include the available alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

REDI provide educational and vocational services to adults such as literacy programs job training. They also have a children and family branch that provides Early Intervention services to children and their families. The co-chairs and innovators of this “Tasty Talk” concept are noted Realtor Michelle Leonard who has already come into local notoriety as “The Hat Lady” and her close friend Dr. Thanuja Hamilton. Their bookings of interesting and accomplished speakers have proven to be very impressive. “These Tasty Talks have become the area’s monthly ‘go-to’ luncheon event,” said Yangming owner, Michael Wei. “Every month I get so many heart-warming responses to our thought-provoking events and every month the attendance has been building.” Yangming is located at Conestoga and County Line Roads in Bryn Mawr.

National History Bee Action at Friends’ Central

tral Middle School teachers Jebb Chagan and Rae Esformes, co-coordinators of the MS History Bee, worked for months to prep students for the competition, which tests stuFriends’ Central Middle School students Emilio Ovalle of Havertown and Theo Dankoff of Philadelphia competed in the Regional Finals of the National History Bee, which took place on April 19 at FCS, and qualified for National Finals, which takes place in June in Atlanta, Ga. They are pictured here with Middle School teacher and co-coordinator of the History Bee Jebb Chagan.

Friends’ Central Upper School students Sara Bergmann of Haverford, Marielle Buxbaum of Lansdowne, Peter Salgado of Philadelphia, Ryan Jokelson of Philadelphia, Emma Velinsky of Haverford, and Ben Klein of Philadelphia competed in the National History Bee and Bowl Varsity and JV National Championships during the weekend of April 27-29 in Arlington, Va. n Thursday, April 19, for the fifth consecutive year, Friends’ Central welcomed over 340 people, including 150 Middle School student qualifiers from both public and private schools in the tri-state area, to host the Regional Finals of the Middle School National History Bee. Four Friends’ Central Middle Schoolers qualified for and participated in the Regional Finals, and based on their performance at Regionals, two students qualified for National Finals. In addition, six Upper School students competed in the National History Bee and Bowl Varsity and JV National Championships, which took place the weekend of April 27-29. Friends’ Central Middle School students Theo Dankoff, Dev Gupta, Emilio Ovalle, and Alec Plante finished among the top 120 in the region on the Online Regional Qualifying Exam (ORQE), making them eligible to participate in the Regional Finals of the National History Bee. All four students who participated in taking the regional exam qualified. Based on their outstanding performance at the Regional Finals, Theo Dankoff and Emilio Ovalle qualified for the National Finals, and Theo Dankoff also qualified to participate in the U.S. Geography Olympiad; both competitions take place on June 1 and 2 in Atlanta, Ga.

dents’ knowledge of U.S. and nonU.S. history. “Over the course of the last six years, it has been exciting to see our young people compete in this national competition, joining a select group of some of the best young minds in the country,” said Chagan. “Rae and I met with our Middle School participants from November through Winter Break to prepare them to qualify for the Regional Finals. After taking the online exam in January, all four of our students qualified, then worked very hard, from weekly meetings to digital study guides to practicing with a buzzer system similar to the one used in the competition. For our Middle Schoolers who participated and those who qualified to compete at the National Finals, the entire Friends’ Central community is especially proud.” In the Upper School division, six Friends’ Central students competed in the Regional History Bee and Bowl Competition and advanced to the National Championships the weekend of April 27-29 in Arlington, Va. Sara Bergmann ’19, Ben Klein ’19, Marielle Buxbaum ’20, Ryan Jokelson ’20, Peter Salgado ’19, and Emma Velinsky ’19 represented Friends’ Central at the National Championships. About the experience of participating in this year’s National History Bee and Bowl, Ben Klein ’19 shared, “It was a great utilization of what we have picked up over the years through the expansive FCS history department. It also serves as a way to hone our memorization skills, comprehension, and ability to connect those skills together so we could answer questions. We prepped by coming up with study guides to distinguish easily confusable topics (i.e. different treaties, Supreme Court cases, etc). Mr. Chagan has done great work encouraging students to pursue this opportunity, often singling out students that secretly know more than they let on.” Congratulations to all Middle and Upper School students who participated in this exciting competition, and good luck to the Middle School students competing in Nationals!

Germantown Friends School PennDOT Announces Statewide Innovations Challenge Winner Investment Team Competes T in Global Finals Continued from page 6

GFS students included sophomore Huang; and juniors Aidan Curry, Malana Li, Ethan Rupp, Leo Wang, and Kelly Zhang. All members of the team are part of the school’s Investment Club, which Huang co-launched with teammate Leo Wang less than two years ago for students interested in investment and the economy, and curious about how the stock market works. She sent an email to her classmates to gauge interest and was pleased at the response; a room full of people signed up for the first meeting. “The KWHS Investment Competition has been an exciting experience for me and offered a hands-on way of learning about finance. Last year’s competition was actually the inspiration for launching the school’s Investment Club and made me realize that so many students at GFS are interested in how the stock market works,” said Huang. “The Investment Club is now a weekly platform for students to learn more about world economy, finance, and investment, and share what we've learned about business from our own discovery. I’m proud of both our team’s accomplishment as a KWHS finalist and proud of our entire club for advancing our knowledge of finance.” For info about the competition, visit http://kwhs.wharton.upenn.edu/competitions/investment-competitions/.

MAMMA MIA! AT THE WALNUT STREET THEATRE Continued from front page

mances of MAMMA MIA! taking place around the world. It has been translated into 22 languages and has premiered in more cities faster than any musical in history. The original production in 1999 brought a renaissance to ABBA’s music, reinstating the album ABBA Gold to the top of the music charts for the second time in 15 years. Richard Stafford returns to the Walnut as director and choreographer of MAMMA MIA! His previous Walnut credits include direction and choreography for last season’s smash Saturday Night Fever, Sister Act, Memphis, Curtains, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Beauty and the Beast, and Cats, as well as choreography for The Goodbye Girl, La Vie en Bleu, and Evita. Joining Stafford is Music and Vocal Director John Daniels, whose many Walnut credits include A Funny Thing...Forum, Annie, and Saturday Night Fever. Anne Brummel makes her Walnut debut as Donna Sheridan. She most recently performed as Elphaba on Broadway and the National Tour of Wicked and has performed in the national tours of Evita, Cats (directed by Richard Stafford), and The Scarlet Pimpernel. She has performed regionally with Riverside Theatre, Sacramento Music Circus, and Meadow Brook Theatre. Her fellow “Dynamos,” Tanya and Rosie, will be played by Lyn Philistine and Charis Leos, respectively. Leos makes her Walnut debut in the production and has performed regionally at the Fulton and Maine State Music Theatre. Philistine was most recently seen on the Walnut stage as Lily St. Regis in Annie. Sophie’s three potential fathers will be played by Jonas Cohen (Harry Bright), Eric Kunze (Sam Carmichael), and Christopher Sutton (Bill Austin). Cohen made his Walnut debut earlier this season as Cosmé McMoon in Souvenir. Sutton has performed many times at the Walnut in shows including The Buddy Holly Story, Annie, Elf, and The Wizard of Oz. Kunze was last seen at the Walnut as the Teen Angel in Grease and most recently traveled the country playing Prince Eric on the National Tour of The Little Mermaid. Laura Giknis, who audiences will remember from Grease and Sister Act, will play Donna’s daughter, Sophie, and Schuyler Conaway (South Pacific) will play Sky. Tara Tagliaferro (Annie) and Kathryn Miller (Annie) will play Sophie’s best friends, Ali and Lisa. Billy D. Hart (Annie, Forum) returns to the Walnut as Eddie, and Christopher deProphetis (Saturday Night Fever, Plaid Tidings) as Father Alexandrios. Brett-Marco Galuser, in his Walnut debut, plays Pepper. In the ensemble, the Walnut welcomes back Anthony Avino, Jesse Jones, Cody Knable, Adam Mandala, Kimberly Maxson, Owen Pelesh, Kristyn Pope, and welcomes Walnut newcomers Evan Autio, Taylor Fields, Taylor Elise Rector, Kristi Smith, and Jet Thomas. Scenic Designer Peter Barbieri returns to lead the design team in transporting the audience to the enchanting Greek locale. Joining Barbieri in creating the feather boas and disco balls are Costume Designer Gail Baldoni, Lighting Designer Jack Mehler, and Sound Designer David Temby. MAMMA MIA! runs at the Walnut May 15 through July 15. Open captioning will be available for the 7 p.m. performance on Sunday, June 10. The Tuesday, July 3 performance will be ASL interpreted and Audio Described. This production is sponsored by AIG and Scully Company. For tickets and information, call 215-574-3550 or 800-982-2787.

Two Philly teens take home top honors at the recent Saunders Scholars National Competition in Rochester, NY. Sixty-two students from across the nation pitched their businesses to judges after graduating from the Young Entrepreneurs Academy, a nonprofit which teaches kids how to start and run their own business. From left – Second Place winner Hannah Rodriguez of Knoxville, TN; First place winners Ryan Klauder and Chris Muth of Philadelphia, PA, Small Business Host Amanda Brinkman, and Third Place winner Merrick Eng from Staten Island, NY. hen Chris Muth was in pre-school, he wore a suit to school nearly every day. Today the 17-year-old cancer survivor is the founder and CEO of Rex Riccardi , a fashion and lifestyle business with a cause (https://rexriccardi.com). Muth and his business partner Ryan Klauder are both classmates at Devon Prep outside Philadelphia. The two started the company while they were both enrolled in the Philadelphia chapter of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. YEA! is a national nonprofit program which teaches kids how to start and run their own businesses. The 30-week curriculum transforms students into CEOs and empowers kids to turn big ideas into business opportunities. Both Muth and Klauder credit the Young Entrepreneurs Academy for giving them the tools to turn their passion into a real business. Part of the program involves conducting research to determine if there’s a market for a product before a business is developed. Klauder who is the CFO of the company says during their research they read a study by Men’s Wearhouse showing the pocket square biz was growing by 50%, meaning timing may be just right for Rex Riccardi. So how did the two come up with the name of this unique business? “We named our business after the inventor of the pocket square. King Richard translated in Latin is Rex Riccardi,” says Muth.

W

Rex Riccardi pocket squares combine art and fashion. The silk print designs are reproductions of artwork by the late NFL Hall of Famer Garo Yepremian who died of cancer in 2015. Rex Riccardi pocket squares combine art and fashion. The silk print designs are reproductions of artwork by the late NFL Hall of Famer Garo Yepremian who died of cancer in 2015. His widow agreed to allow Chris and Ryan to use the designs for their upstart business. Both teens are passionate about the business and supporting a cause. Muth was diagnosed with cancer when he was just two years old. At age five, he was in remission. Because of this, 10% of all sales of Rex Riccardi pocket squares support Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a national childhood cancer nonprofit funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer. Muth and Klauder represented one of 62 small businesses owned by teens and selected to compete in the Young Entrepreneurs Academy’s 10th Annual Saunders Scholars National Competition. By placing first and winning the grand prize, the two will receive $50,000 in scholarships and an all-expense paid trip to the U.S. Chamber’s Small Business Summit in Washington. D.C. Other winners in the national contest include: • Second Place – Hannah Rodriguez, a high school senior from Knoxville, TN. As founder and CEO of Hannah Ashton Content, she produces sponsored content for beauty brands as well as offers an online social media course for others who want to build an online presence. The fashion vlogger has more than 140,000 YouTube subscribers. She received $41,500 in scholarships. • Third Place – Merrick Eng from Staten Island, NY. He received a total of $35,000 in scholarship for his business MasterMerrick. His product is called the Eco Tip, an environmentally-friendly bag for culinary purposes allowing cake decorators to remove the tip from the outside of the bag. • People’s Choice – Nick Silzell from Grand Junction, CO. He is the founder and CEO of Sleepy Sheepy, a bamboo pillowcase which offers two sides of different fabrics. One side is bamboo fleece, which is very soft, fuzzy, warm, and absorbent. The other side is bamboo fiber, which is smooth and cold. Silzell won a $20,000 scholarship. The scholarships are for those who are accepted and choose to attend either Rochester Institute of Technology or Watson Institute at Lynn University.
