“Mr. Clark was the best teacher I have ever had. Not only did he teach me about business, but he also was a mentor and a major influence in turning me into the man I am today.”

Malcolm McEwen, 2018

“My junior year in Financial Services has brought about countless memories, ranging from small comments made in class all the way up to a week-long trip to Boston for National Competitions. Along the way, I grew passionate about BPA and FS and want to continue getting more involved."

Jason Hentz, 2017
“All of the trips that we took in this class were so much fun … I have learned so much about myself going through these events."
 
Ceairrah Duffy, 2016
"Financial Services has been one of the best experiences of my high school career. Everything I learned in this class will stay with me for the rest of my life.”
 
Lilly Dominguez, 2015
"My journey in Financial Services has been one of the greatest things I have ever been through and I’m very grateful that I had the chance to experience this.”
 
DaQuan Fletcher, 2014
“Being a part of Financial Services has been one of the best opportunities of my high school career. I am so thankful I was able to come into the program!”
 
Jessica Fiorini, 2013
“I looked forward to this class every day because of the atmosphere and the amazing times we all had together. Financial Services made everyone in this class feel like a family and made me feel like I was part of an amazing group.”
 
Josh Eberhard, 2014
"I'm so glad I got to experience becoming an executive officer, going to state competitions, attending fall leadership conference, visiting The Ohio State University, touring the University of Cincinnati, and being part of all the gatherings we had throughout the year."
 
Emani Thompson, 2015
“Financial Services has opened my eyes to the real world. I have learned how to file taxes, what to look for in contracts, the different types of insurance you need, how supply and demand works, and many other things that you wouldn’t learn in other classes."

Taylor Cole, 2016

“One of the things I enjoyed most about Financial Services was that we got to play around and make jokes. Most teachers don’t get to know their kids and have fun with them, but with Mr. Clark it’s a whole different story. He loves his job and always makes learning fun."

Brandon Mueller, 2017

“This class has pushed and challenged me in ways I never expected. This class made me get out of my shell and I will forever be grateful for that. Plus, I have accomplished things that I didn’t think I would accomplish until I was in my twenties. I had an absolute blast.”

Abby Cira, 2018

“The most meaningful thing to me about Financial Services was learning different things everyday … things that I will actually use outside of school, things that will help me with my future. Everything that we learned will help me later in life.”

Leigha Smith, 2017

“Mr. Clark not only cares about his students, but he considers us family. And although he has new students every year, it seems that he remembers everybody and anybody. He makes every interaction with every one of his students personal. I am beyond thankful ..."

Trevor Barton, 2016
“I love the experience in Financial Services because you learn multiple things that you will actually use in life.”

Connor VanSteelandt, 2015
“Financial Services is the type of class where you get exactly what you put into it, and that’s why it has been the most rewarding class I could have ever taken in my four years at Northwest.”
 
Alexandra Roelofs, 2014
“I will aways remember this class because of how fun it was and how helpful of a teacher Mr. Clark was.”

Cameron Horne, 2013
“I like how I am able to take what I learn in Financial Services and spread it throughout my entire life. When I’m out with friends or even in another class, I’ll relate things we talk about with things I learn in FS.”
 
Shannon Linz, 2014
"I enjoyed this class more than any other because the lessons that were taught didn't just apply to the class, but to my life and my future. I have learned how to interview, how to budget, what insurance to buy, how to apply to for a job, and how to help others do the same."
 
Stephanie Russell, 2015
“Junior year in Financial Services was great, fun, and it helped me to grow. I am really looking forward to Senior Financial Services next year!”
 
Kobe Brown, 2016
“This year has been very fun and unforgettable. I couldn’t imagine what my year would have been like if I didn’t take this class.”

Mikayla Nutting, 2017

“Some of my favorite memories from FS include competing at State, going on field trips, going outside and taking class pictures, coming in for prep on the weekends, and last but not least, just having fun and interesting talks in class.”

Brandon Bennett, 2018

"No matter what you do in life, you need to know everything about personal finance. You need to know about the job market. You need to know about incomes. You need to know about benefits. No matter who you are and what your job is, you need to know this information. And luckily, I already know it all before graduating high school."

Kaitlyn Hayes, 2017

“Financial Services was my favorite class, not only because of the class but also because of the people in it and the teacher teaching it. Going in, I heard a lot of good things about the class and these two years showed me why everyone wanted to get into FS.”

Ayman El Qasem, 2016
"I still can't wrap my head around the fact that I won't be sitting in this same seat next year, but I know I'll be doing just fine because FS helped me figure out what I want to do in life."
 
Alyssa Mueller, 2015
“When I saw Financial Services as a career program option, I knew I had to take the opportunity to try it out. I know a lot of Colerain students would probably be freaked out by the thought of coming to a new school every day, but I would encourage them to do it. You make new friends, learn about the world of business, and figure out what you want to study in college.”
  
Tanner Biehl, 2014
“My experience in Financial Services has been one for the books. Ever since my first visit to room 317 my sophomore year, I couldn’t imagine my high school career without this class.”
 
Dillon Salter, 2013
“BPA has been such a great experience and I encourage every student to join and try their best in competitions. State and Nationals are the most fun you’ll ever have at a school function!”
  
Kelsi Garibay, 2014
"If I could rewind to the beginning of junior year and relive all the experiences that I had in this class, I would do it without a second thought."
 
Jared Givens, 2015
"I feel like Financial Services is the only class that teaches us things we actually need for life ... things like signing contracts, managing savings and checking accounts, understanding how the economy works, and so much more."
 
Taya Sorrells, 2016

“Looking back on all my high school memories the ones that are most vivid and most important to me are memories that I have made with my Financial Services classmates. Every time I will think high school, Financial Services will never fail to cross my mind. Without Financial Services I definitely would not be the same person that I am today.”

Courtney Moore, 2017

“This has been a very fun and exciting experience to be part of FS for the past two years. I absolutely love the environment when I walk into this class … it’s like being at home with my family.”

Tyler Scott, 2018

"All the activities we did allowed everyone to use their own unique skills and ideas and ultimately created one big Financial Services family. Through the many group projects and activities, Financial Services allows people to be themselves while also growing together. It truly was the best two years of my life."

Abby Bandy, 2017

“Thanks to Financial Services, I am accepted into one of the best business schools in the country, I know I want to study finance, and I know exactly what I want to do in life. I am forever grateful for this class and to Mr. Clark.”

Mason Faucett, 2016

“You don’t just learn in this class; you get to experience it.”

Matt Paluga, 2015

“I will never forget Financial Services. One day when I accomplish my lifetime goals, I will look back and say BPA, Financial Services, and Mr. Clark helped to make this happen.”

Jason Sorn, 2014

“This class is full of great life experiences and lessons. I hope that everyone who takes this class gets the same great experience as I did.”

Jeremy Hurlander, 2013
