    • Reality Store activities at Mexico Middle School

    • More than 70 representatives from the business community participated in the second annual Reality Store activity held Wednesday at Mexico Middle School for eighth grade and 11th grade students. The Reality Store is a joint venture hosted by MMS and the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce to provide a decision-making experience addressing individual and family budgeting. This year's event invited MMS eighth-graders and Mexico High School juniors, with most asserting the event was a "good learning experience and worthwhile." After visiting every booth, eighth-grader Dawna Kampmann said "this experience has changed my outlook. I'm not having kids anytime soon; they're too expensive." Her plan is "college, career and then family."
