COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) – Training up the next generation of business leaders and giving them the tools to reach their goals. That is the mission at hand for educational leaders at Benedict College and executives with Synovus Bank.
“I feel like this has given me knowledge beyond my years,” Saniyya Boykin told WACH FOX News Friday.
Boykin and eleven other high school students completed the first ever Y.E.S., standing for ‘youth entrepreneurship summer camp’ through Benedict College’s upward bound program – in partnership with Synovus Bank.
“We learned about how you’re always supposed to save, and not spend all of it, it’s called reserve. And we learned how to always have a relationship with your banker,” said Arieyanna Wactor, another high school student.
