Marketing & Business Management

Instructor: Aja Tompot

The Marketing and Business Management Program provides students opportunities to gain valuable experience through a variety of hands on activities and courses. Skills developed revolve around leadership, teamwork, responsibility and communication. Students in the program run and operate The Blue Streak Spirit Shop which sells to students, staff and community members. This allows them to see the ins and outs of operating a business. Each year the students in the program plan the Prom Fashion Show usually held in the Hartville Collectibles ballroom. The students learn project management through this big event and the proceeds are used for student scholarships. All students in the program are members of DECA, a student business organization, that offers competition based around business scenarios, travel opportunities and community service projects. Senior students also start small businesses in which they operate all throughout the year, compete in local competitions and have the opportunity to earn profits.

Up to 12 College Credit Plus hours can be earned through Stark State within the two years in the program.  If you’d like to learn more about the program please contact the instructor Mrs. Aja Tompot at
