Cuyahoga Falls High School is a recipient of The Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum Grant, according to the district's deputy superintendent, Melvin Brown. The Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum has provided the E2 den a $10,000 grant for the 2016-17 school year, Brown said, adding the grant is to be used for the purpose of enhancing the ability of students to become interested and more engaged in the field of entrepreneurship.

CFHS students will now actively become involved with programs and students from John Carroll University, Baldwin Wallace University and Case Western Reserve University, the deputy superintendent explained.

According the Forum's website, the Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum, funded by The Veale Foundation, is a growing network of high schools in Northeast Ohio that equips students with an entrepreneurial mindset and essential skills by providing "exceptional education and real-world experiences in entrepreneurship."

Founded in 2012 with the assistance of the Young Entrepreneur Institute at University School, the Forum today reaches about 1,000 students annually at 18 different private and public high schools that are invited for participation.

Students participating in the Veale Youth Entrepreneurship Forum gain the ability to:

recognize business opportunities,

think creatively and analytically,

solve problems,

take initiative,

persist through failure,

work collaboratively, and

communicate effectively.

Walsh Jesuit High School is among the 21 other schools participating in the Veale Networking program.
