Business Association for Students of Color: Tutoring Program was a Success!

The Business Association for Students of Color completed their pilot program of Math tutoring for Elementary Students today.  Clinton Elementary School, located in Poughkeepsie, NY received 6 students from the School of Business ready to work this morning as tutors for designated students in the 2nd and 4th grade of this institution.  BASC students taught Common Core math to these 2nd and 4th graders by working with Money!
 
In the end, all were pleased.  The Principal, Mr. David Scott, and several of the Clinton Elementary School teachers sent great praise to our BASC students for their hard work, their ease in working with their students and felt the pilot was a great success!  BASC will look at implementing this Community Service on a consistent basis starting in the Fall of 2016.
Job Well done, BASC!
