Stahl Scholarship winners from Pine Bush High School

The Business Dept. at Pine Bush currently offers courses in Entrepreneurship, Accounting, Business Applications, Marketing, Financial Planning, Banking, Economics, and Business Math.  Additionally, the Art Dept. offers courses in 3D Art & Design, Game Design, Animation, and Media Arts. They are excited for this scholarship to bridge the departments in a meaningful and productive way while offering students project-based learning opportunities.

Specifically, Nora has focused her efforts on opening a spirit store in the school this year to give students real-world training in accounting, marketing, merchandising, design, and entrepreneurial skills. The school is passionate about giving students tangible skills so they can get meaningful jobs out of high school.

I have a fantastic group of young people that are excited to do this! My vision is to integrate departmental efforts via our spirit store. We have worked to create more programs to help students that want to enter the workforce right away. This scholarship will make it possible for us to train and equip students to enter entrepreneurial or trade-based fields without taking out unnecessary and crippling student loans.

Congratulations to Pine Bush High School on this well-deserved scholarship!

Small Business Winner: HRH Made

The first quarter small business winner is HRH Made, a workforce training social enterprise of Hudson River Housing, Inc. Located in Poughkeepsie, NY, HRH Made supports a rotation cohort of trainees who have experienced homelessness and barriers to employment such as housing instability, age, disability, health issues, and others. Their goal is to prepare people for future jobs, giving participants a sense of confidence, creative expression, skill-building, job readiness, and money management skills.

In 2019, HRH Made began offering onsite T-shirt printing at a local music festival and have since expanded to offer printing at local regattas, fundraising events, and other festivals. The currently offer digital print/cut, heat transfer vinyl, screen printing, and sublimation decorating.

Goals of HRH Made

One of their goals is to continue developing and expanding their advocacy line of products, which currently includes “World Without Homelessness” and “Everyone Deserves a Door” gear, with several additional designs. In the future, they plan to print their advocacy line of products at national conferences for agencies that provide services for people who have experienced housing insecurity and homelessness.

In 2022, HRH Made launched a program called “Teen Shirt”, to teach printing and entrepreneurial skills to youth in their community. As they stated, “when you hire HRH Made, you’re not just getting a great product, you’re supporting an even greater mission. 100% of our proceeds support workforce training programs at Hudson River Housing.”

With their scholarship, they are hoping to greatly improve the quality and production time of their products. They are also looking forward to having much better equipment to work with, and the onsite training. As they put, “The training will be invaluable for us. We have learned this craft from trial and error, “YouTube University,” reading blogs, and online training offered by our suppliers, including STAHLS’.”

Congratulations to this inspiring organization on their scholarship!

  1. This scholarship is amazing and the winners are very lucky to win the equipment, they will love them. I’m wondering, for businesses that are struggling yet already have this equipment if there might be a future program involving an industry professional that would come visit to view processes and pricing and then discuss where improvements can me made in order to become profitable and successful?
