C-NS Entrepreneurship Students Treated to Luncheon Lesson

Prior to the holiday recess, students in Linda Dwyer and Rick Mancabelli's Entrepreneurship classes at Cicero-North Syracuse High School stepped outside of the classroom and took a trip to Skaneateles to learn directly from a local trail-blazer in their field of interest. 
Entrepreneurship classes at C-NS are designed for students interested in learning about creating their own business opportunities. The curriculum allows them to explore the creative and innovative practices of successful entrepreneurs, including those right here in the Syracuse area. Adam Weitsman is an American entrepreneur and owner and chief executive officer (CEO) of Upstate Shredding and Weitsman Recycling, a local scrap metal processing company.
In addition to sharing his story and giving a presentation about starting and maintaining his companies, Weitsman also took questions from students and even treated the group to a complimentary lunch at the Elephant and the Dove restaurant. Rick Mancabelli, who came up with the idea and arranged the visit said, “There are so many successful business stories right here in our own backyard and we are fortunate that the individuals who have stayed here and helped our community are also willing to share their expertise and life skills with our students.”
