Written by Bart Smith, Director of Roanoke Regional Small Business Development Center
Having served as the Director of the Roanoke Regional Small Business Development Center for more than three years, I have had the opportunity to meet with and speak to a number of high school and college students in their business related classes. Most are attentive and for the most part polite, however I can honestly say that the most impressive group of students that I have had the privilege of speaking with are enrolled at the Springhouse Community School. The students were very engaged, possessed excellent communication skills and were sincerely interested in improving their project based on the feedback I gave them. It was a pleasure to meet and work with such bright, delightful young people. I have no doubt that the unique manner in which they are learning at the school will serve them well in their future scholastic endeavors. I would welcome the opportunity to work with them and future classes at Springhouse again soon.
