Aggies Get Free Lemonade, Lesson On Business

By  | 

Despite the cloudy skies, students didn't pass up getting a free drink... of lemonade.

Stands setup outside the Mays Business school handed out the cool beverages and information about Lemonade Day. It's a national effort to teach kids important goals by starting their own business.

The idea came from Michael Holt-house and his wife as a way to teach youth about being entrepreneurs.

"Everybody learns. Hey, we start a few thousand new entrepreneurs right here in Bryan College Station, imagine the impact that's going to have 20 years from today," says Michael Holthouse, Chairman of Prepared 4 Life.

Michael Holt-house, the founder of Lemonade day, was on campus to receive the 2010 Conn Family Entrepreneurial Leadership Award.

Holthouse is known in the business world as founder and president of Paranet Inc., a computer network services company.
