Marvin Ridge student flexes his financial muscles
By Caitlin Coakley In 30 days, Josh Arnold, a high school senior, made $128,387.80. Not actual dollars, but virtual wealth gained through an online simulation as part of H&R Block’s Dollars and Sense Financial Fitness Challenge. The 18-year-old Marvin Ridge High School student and future entrepreneur beat out 40 other teams from North Carolina to claim the title of the state’s most financially fit student. The online simulation, which resembles the computer game The Sims, featured an avatar of the participating student out in the world after high school. Arnold had to make decisions such as where to live, what sort of bank account to open, and what job to get. “It was difficult to determine which career path I should take to maximize my profit,” Arnold said. “Figuring that out took a lot of time and effort.”
