Tayler is awarded the keys to the City!
Exchange City, that is! Tayler participated along with his sixth grade class in Exchange City in Indianapolis. Exchange City is a program where students run and operate a city for the day. Students prepare a few weeks before the program with activities such as check writing, interviewing for positions, etc. It is a really cool program and the students look forward to it all year. The City is like any other city in the U.S. It consists of restaurants, businesses, and even a mayor. The students run the entire city on their own throughout a school day with various job responsibilites. Tayler was an international accountant. I thought this was a perfect fit as he has always had a knack for business and loves to save his money.......and of course, I like the international part as well:) We assured him that if he pursued this career in real life, he would make more than his 40 cents an hour wage he made at Exchange City:) At the end of the day, students and teachers vote on who the hardest working students were during their participation of running the City. At the end of the day, Tayler was awarded the prize along with the keys to the City. He was so excited and Brian was glad he was there to see him get such an award. Congratulations to our little hard worker!
