What makes Tyrone Area High School so cool? The student-run business program sponsored by Junior Achievement!
The Tyrone student-run business program includes four economics classes, each with its own business.  As part of the class, students sell stock; conduct market research; elect officers; handle production negotiations, inventory, marketing, human resources, sales, and finance. At the end, each student will walk away with a real money paycheck for their efforts.
  • Class A is selling tye-dye t-shirts that the students made themselves.
  • Class B is selling Tyrone Eagles t-shirts ( 50 cents from each sale goes to the Panzi Hospital in the DRC.)
  • Class C is selling black and grey fleece jackets.
  • Class D is selling “Save the Squeeze” squeeze bottles ($1.00 from each sale goes to the Breast Cancer and Women’s Health Institute at the Tyrone Hospital.)  
The public can purchase any of the products by calling (814) 684-4240 ext. 3208. Just leave your name and number and someone will get back to you.
