Makaya Higgins is the banker in Our Town, meaning all other business owners visit her at some point to deposit checks. The purpose of the project is to teach students about financials and real-world math applications.
Our Town businesses range from eateries to real estate brokerages. Remington Adam sells tractors, livestock, fencing and more at the Farm and Ranch Supply shop.
Alexis Wawroski runs a Snack Shop in Our Town, supplying her fellow classmates with provisions.
