On Wednesday, January 14, 2020 Karina Seeley and her New Visions business partners presented their 2020, A Junior Achievement Company business plan at the Southern Tier Incubator and invited Mrs. Conrow and Mr. Rullo to accompany her. The product that Karina and her team created was a produce pouch which consisted of five reusable mesh produce bags to address New Yorks plastic bag ban. The company SOLD OUT of all products and were the highest grossing company of the New Visions Business Academy so far. We are so proud of Karina and are so grateful for the New Visions business program sponsors: LCP Group, Inc., VISIONS Federal Credit Union, Koffman Southern Tier Incubator, AMERICAN REAL and ICS. Karina has earned a full scholarship to Alfred State College!
