Congratulations to the US Economics Club, comprised of US students (L to R) Club Founder, Alex Knorr '19, Ari Maki '19, Faculty Advisor Frank Roche, Mike Carnavalla '19, and Max Helman '18, on advancing to the semi-finals of the National Economics Challenge (NEC) - the nation's most prestigious high school economics competition. Each year, over 10,500 students across the country participate in the competition. King defeated all the other high schools in Connecticut in the David Ricardo division, which includes semester general economics students participating in the challenge for the first time.
Club Advisor Frank Roche, adds, "King's NEC team is strong and composed of students who have an independent interest in economics and finance. Alex, Ari, Michael, and Max are strong students, are well motivated, and are excited to be in the competition. With these four young men leading us King has a wonderful opportunity to be in the finals."
The Club now advances to the national semi-finals against all the other state winners. The top four teams will advance to the national finals in NYC.
