Economics and Personal Finance Classes visit Finance Park in RVA

Students went to Junior Achievement Finance Park to learn about personal finance. At the Fiance Park, students were given an alternative life and job that they had to plan for. They had to account for everything from paying back student loans, the cost of having children, to finding a place to live. Here are some students who are hard at work figuring out their budget for the month.

Elizabeth Dosado - CHS Student of the Month for December

Elizabeth Cierra Dosado, daughter of James and Celina Dosado, was selected as Student of the Month for December at Caroline High School. Elizabeth was selected because of her determination, hard work, and successes both in and out of the classroom. She is in the top 3% of her graduating class and has maintained a GPA over a 4.0 throughout high school. Perhaps she is best known around CHS for her wrestling achievements. Elizabeth is a member of the varsity wrestling team where she has been a two time state qualifier, the Hanover Hawkeye Wrestling Team where she was a seven time VAWA champion, and the Virginia National Wrestling Team where she was a two time national placer. Elizabeth is the first wrestler from Caroline to make it onto the state team. She also enjoys singing, writing, and helping others through church, mission trips, and working with Special Olympics. After graduation, Elizabeth plans to attend a four year university to become a psychologist or mental health counselor as well as a wrestling coach.
