MSD Investment Club holds their first official meeting

Just as the last bell rings indicating that school is over, students start lining up and piling into the media center for the first official Investment Club meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 27.

The investment club started a few years ago and the major idea is to educate students, who are interested in perhaps starting their own investment or for their eventual retirement or for college.

“I have a deep interest in finance and am pursuing finance as a future career,” co-president Stella Marvel said.

The meeting started off with some reminders and information on the club such as paying dues, schedules, and the club’s sweatshirts. After the general information was done, they all played a Blooket.

The specific game mode picked for the students to play was Battle Royale. In Battle Royale, attendees went one-on-one for questions. The person who gets the answer correct or faster wins the round. The person who answers the question wrong or slower, loses the round and is automatically eliminated. The rounds go over and over again until there is one winner.

The game was filled with rounds and rounds of questions related to investment. Even though many may have not known the answers to all the questions and gotten many wrong, the whole point of this activity was to show club members what they will be learning in the year.

Even though the questions were all one on one, it still was a team bonding experience. The media center was still filled with active conversations and laughter. Everyone was enjoying their time at the first official investment club meeting.

“The investment club means that me and my officer team can bring together a bunch of people to further our students’ financial literacy and also have a fun time with students and make new friends,” Marvel said.

Another person who was very active and attended the meeting was Michael Powell. Powell is not only the advisor of the club, he is also a beloved math teacher, teaching Algebra II and Pre-calculus.

“As a teacher, I just want my students to be happy and one of the things to help people to be happier is if they know that their finances are not stressful,” Powell said.

Overall the first official investment club meeting was a great success. With a high participation and attendance rate, the club is looking forward to more exciting, fun and educational meetings in the future.
