BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!  Want to see some of our youngest of entrepreneurs?  BCS students, like Hayden Mann of Shallotte Middle School, are getting ready to present at the Brunswick County 2nd Annual Kids Expo on August 17th at Holden Beach (Booths will be set up under the bridge.)

Hayden is the mastermind to 'Coastal Art and Creations' and won his age bracket last year. "This year I have taken all of the lessons that I have learned from last year’s expo and I have improved my business plan," Hayden said of his game plan for this year. "In addition to that I have fine tuned my woodworking skills, removed excess overhead so I could lower prices and I have added an item that in my opinion is truly helpful in our coastal environment."

Expect big things from this early entrepreneur!!! He will join a number of other Brunswick County Schools students taking part in this years Brunswick County Chamber of Commerce Kids Expo. The expo runs from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.
