Patricia Williams believes in financial literacy. So much so that the superintendent and principal at Ambassadors Preparatory Academy joined the nationally recognized Lemonade Day Program to help today’s students become the business leaders, social advocates, community volunteers and forward-thinking citizens of tomorrow — one lemonade stand at a time.
About 120 Ambassadors Preparatory Academy students are preparing for Lemonade Day Galveston on Oct. 24. The pandemic has shaken up the event, like it has most everything since March. This year, students have a choice of five ways to sell their lemonade. Choices include the To Go Way, in which customers pick up pre-packaged lemonade kits; the Drive Thru Way, where students set up their stands and sell to customers through their car windows; the Community Way, where they set up in a public location; the High Tech Way, a full-on virtual store; and the Social Way, using social media to advertise and sell their lemonade.
