Students in Melissa Cosgrove’s Business Law class at the High School
were studying “Ownership and Leasing of Real Property” and welcomed a
special guest speaker to teach them some important details to help
understand the concepts in a more substantial way.
Amanda Eckart, a real estate agent from Keller Williams Realty,
presented to the class. She taught the students about the Fair Housing
Act, rental agreements, renters insurance and the responsibilities of a
real estate agent.
Ms. Cosgrove noted that the students enjoyed the presentation, which was
arranged by teacher Ed Storck as part of the District’s
“I learned a lot about residential leasing,” Natalie Epp, a senior,
said. “The presentation was very valuable, since I will probably rent an
apartment in college in a few years.” Her classmate junior Peter
Flanagan added “I thought having a guest speaker was great! I learned a
lot about what a real estate agent does."
