This Week in Galway: TAPS heads to NYC!

Sam Grant, EMC Staff Writer

Hi there Eagle Nation. As you may or may not know, the team by the name of TAPS, consisting of Riley Flint, Madison Kieft, Lily Gullett, Samantha Grant, and Jonathan Fajans, embarked on a day trip to the Big Apple on June 4th. They were accompanied by Mrs. Sitts and Mr. Maliszewski. The team won this expense-free trip two months prior at the Stock Market Challenge at UAlbany. Here, the team worked together in a huge game revolving around the stock market. They worked together, constantly buying and selling different kinds of shares at different companies. Of course, the stocks were not real. TAPS won 1st place out of about 70 other teams from several schools in the Capitol Region.

One of their prizes of winning this contest was a free trip to the city. Here, they got a guided tour at the New York Stock Exchange, as well as a tour at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Sound interesting? This could be you during your senior year if you attend The Stock Market Challenge!
