Business students at Walter G. O’Connell High School had a special guest speaker on March 2 when Mitchell Modell, CEO of Modell’s Sporting Goods, visited the school to present a business seminar.

Modell spoke to business students about the history of his company, how it has grown and changed over the years, how it has adapted and how its business model works in the marketplace.
Modell also spoke to students about the company’s mission statement and its motto to listen, respect and respond. He spoke about garnering some real insight into his own company by participating in “Undercover Boss.” After his lecture, Modell opened the floor for a question and answer session for the business students who are currently taking classes such as marketing, fashion, entrepreneurship, computer skills, web design, and college and career planning.
