MetroRegion Kansas City News: High Schoolers Run Community Grocery Store in Leeton MO

The residents of Leeton- a small community in southern Johnson county MO- now have a town grocery store due to the town's high school.

According to this story by staff writer Teresa Shane of The WARRENSBURG (MO) DAILY STAR-JOURNAL- students of the high school- under supervision and direction of teachers- operate the town's only grocery store "The Bulldog Express.'

Leeton students learn mathematics- business and management skills at the store- and local residents don't have to drive to larger towns like Warrensburg to get groceries.

This excellent idea could become a model for small towns throughout the Central States that would benefit both students and residents in the communities served by such a plan.
