A college student from Center Point recently had a proposal accepted to present at the nation's largest business organization in California this week.
Adrie Koehler will present a DVD called "Cash Rules," an informational movie about credit cards and spending, to attendants at the National Business Educator Convention.
The NBEC is, "the nation's largest professional organization devoted exclusively to serving individuals and groups engaged in instruction, administration, research and dissemination of information for and about business," according to its website.
In addition to presenting her project, the Indiana State University student with three majors, business education; information, design and computing and end-user computing, will also hear Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger speak.
She is looking forward to the overall experience.
"I always get nervous for presentations," she said. "I will be especially nervous for this presentation due to the national level aspect. However, making the DVD was the hard part. So, I am sure that presenting will be enjoyable."
Koehler, a long-time native of Center Point, said the movie her group created "is designed to give high school students tips on how to manage their credit cards...We plan to give the DVDs to high school teachers, in order for students to become aware of credit card issues before entering college."
She said she is equally excited to be presenting at a national conference and to be able to visit the California beaches for the first time.
Upon graduation, she said, "I would like to get a job teaching business at the middle school or high school level."
The NBEA Convention runs from March 23 to 26 in Anaheim, Calif.
