Academic success


The Daily Item

— The Daily Item article regarding Nate Martin of Lewisburg Area High School and his extraordinary academic success is one I want to share not only because of his achievement but also to note his participation in our Stock Market Game program at his school. Nate is an outstanding student, a very personable young man and quite obviously, as noted in the article, “brilliant.”

His teacher, Michael Creeger, is also one of our most enthusiastic and dedicated educators and the strongest possible advocate of EconomicsPennsylvania programs we could hope to have among our cadre of involved teachers.  Teachers truly are our partners and we’re fortunate to have the support and involvement of individuals like Michael Creeger.

We also enjoy and appreciate the endorsement and support of the Lewisburg School District Superintendent Mark DiRocco, another superb friend of EconomicsPennsylvania. Mark is engaged and involved in many of our endeavors and lends his support to our activities in numerous ways and was named Economics-Pennsyvania Educator of the Year several years ago.

We are enormously proud of Nate and extend to him, his parents and teachers our congratulations on his spectacular academic achievements.
