Marymount Academy Brings Home Gold in Northern Ontario Business Plan Competition

Carly Cummings and Jennifer Roy proudly show off the gold medals they won at the Northern Ontario Business Plan competition.

November 11, 2009 - Both Jennifer Roy and Carly Cummings had smiles from ear to ear as they showed off their gold medals. The two grade eleven girls competed in the Northern Ontario Secondary School Business Plan competition and walked away with first place. “Neither of us thought that anything would come from this.” stated Roy. “It just started off as a project for our class in the beginning and snowballed from there.” Both girls presented their business plan for their product called Rally Yer’ Spirits which are rally towels used to promote and enhance school spirit. Cummings said that their project was inspired by their school. “ At Marymount we focus not only on the academic side, but on our school spirit as well. The enthusiasm and energy that we have is huge and it is a really big part of what makes Marymount special.” After winning the local competition, the girls’ project was then sent to Thunder Bay to be judged for the Northern Ontario division of the competition. Both attended the ceremony and walked away with gold as well as a thousand dollars to split. “This whole experience was really amazing.” said Roy. “Our teacher was ecstatic with our results and was really proud we had done so well.”
