WAVE business teacher and FBLA club advisor Dawn Jameson provided some truly unique learning opportunities for students this spring.
On Monday, April 15, Wausau West’s Mock Trial teams and Business Law students along with WAVE Future Business Leaders of America students participated in Madison’s Court with Class. The students witnessed a case that dealt with Miranda Rights and hearsay statements. Six of the seven judges were present. After the court case, Judge Ann Walsh Bradley and Judge Ziegler talked with our students. The students then toured the Capitol.
On Wednesday, April 17, 38 Wausau West Accounting, Business, and Marketing students (along with WAVE FBLA members Josh and Jared Breunig) traveled to Milwaukee to learn about careers in Accounting and Marketing.

The students were also treated to a Brewer Game.
