EPISD – A Career-Day visit from a locally owned business, MC Consultants, turned into an impromptu Shark Tank classroom contest where two fifth-grade Barron Elementary students cashed in their ideas for a $250 check.
Business partners Marcos Vasquez and Carlos Gutierrez, who serve as CEO and CFO of the company, respectively, highlighted the value of operating a small business to Barron Elementary students for Career Day, including the highs and lows that it brings and encouraged students to “Dream it. Do it. Create your legacy” – the MC Consultants motto.
“We wanted to inspire them,” said Vasquez, a Jefferson High alum. The pair decided to put the students’ imagination to work and tasked them to design their own business card that included a logo, company name and their future job title. “We wanted to make it more than just a regular Career Day.” Vasquez said.
The pair were surprised at how impressive the students’ designs were that they decided on the spot to turn the simple task into a competition with a big $500 check for the winner, but found it difficult to narrow it down to just one winner, so they split the prize between Luis Reyes and Abril Esquivel.
