Cary-Grove Senior Wins First Place at VEInternational Global Innovation Challenge
Alex LeMoine

Kade Boehm, a senior at Cary-Grove High School, was on a team of six students from Brazil, Indonesia and New York that placed first at the 2021 Global Innovation Challenge out of over 1,500 international participants. The competition, developed by Virtual Enterprises International, tasked high school students from various countries with creating solutions for communities to combat climate change.

After working with Cary-Grove business teacher, Dave Cook, to register for the event, Boehm was placed on his team. He collaborated with his teammates online over the course of February, March and April, with the top three teams competing in the championship round on April 22, 2021. Boehm said the group met at least twice a week for about two months in preparation for three rounds of competition.

Students were partnered with corporate mentors over the course of the challenge to help develop their solutions and create a presentation. Boehm’s team was partnered with business professionals at Intuit.

“They taught us a lot about the process of making a product and presenting it. One of my favorite things I learned from them was to go broad, go narrow, and that means to go broad with ideas at first and just say whatever comes to mind and then narrow it down to the best ideas or combine ideas,” said Boehm. 

Through virtual collaboration, his team proposed the implementation of an app for communities to use in determining the environmental impact of different products. The app was designed to evaluate products by producing a carbon emission score based on transportation, production process, materials, and more to inform consumers of whether a product is eco-friendly. Boehm and his team presented their plan to a Global Sustainability leader in Intuit, the Head of Corporate Sustainability from HSCB, the Head of CIB Latin America, the Head of CSR Americas at BNP Paribas, and a Chief Sustainability Officer, Americas at BNP Paribas.

Boehm credits the many business and marketing courses he took at Cary-Grove with preparing him for the level and intensity of this global competition. 

“VEI, Marketing, and Intro to Business all helped me tremendously in this challenge because I already had so much experience working on promoting products, talking to people, building a business, and so much more,” said Boehm.

He plans to attend Western Kentucky University next fall to study marketing and business.

Class of 2021 Graduation Updates
Alex LeMoine

Hello Trojan Class of 2021!

As we prepare to celebrate the Senior Class of 2021 at this year’s graduation ceremony, we are asking for some information from you and your families to plan for a safe and appropriately distanced commencement. This year, graduation will be split into two outdoor ceremonies in our football stadium on Saturday, May 15:

  • Morning ceremony: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

  • Afternoon ceremony: 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Students, please complete this survey: (student access only) indicating your plans to attend graduation in-person and your preferred ceremony time. Please discuss your selection with your parents/guardians and complete this survey by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 18. We will use this information to ensure safe physical distancing in our stadium for all graduates and guests in attendance.

We will do our best to accommodate your selection, but please know that due to strict capacity limitations and space restrictions in our stadium, not all students will be able to attend their preferred ceremony. If space does not allow us to schedule you for graduation during your preferred session, you will be scheduled for the alternate session. You will receive an email verifying your scheduled ceremony time on Wednesday, April 21. 

Finally, we plan to offer each family up to four tickets to attend the graduation ceremony in-person. The event will also be live-streamed for anyone else in the family that may not be able to attend. Details regarding tickets will be shared at a later date. 

In the event of inclement weather, both graduation ceremonies will be held on Sunday, May 16 at 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Students from the 10 a.m. ceremony will attend the 4 p.m., and students from the 12 p.m. ceremony will attend the 6 p.m. ceremony.

Thank you for your cooperation as we plan to commemorate your time at Cary-Grove High School together!

Estimados estudiantes de cuarto año (Seniors):

Este año la graduación se dividirá en dos ceremonias al aire libre en nuestro estadio de fútbol el sábado 15 de mayo.  

  • Ceremonia de la mañana: 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

  • Ceremonia de la tarde:  12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Por favor complete esta encuesta: indicando sus planes para asistir a la graduación en persona y su horario preferido para la ceremonia. Por favor, discuta su (s) selección (es) con sus padres/tutores y complete esta encuesta antes de las 11:59 p.m. el domingo 18 de abril. Usaremos esta información para asegurar un distanciamiento físico seguro en nuestro estadio para todos los graduandos e invitados que asistan. 

Haremos todo lo posible para adaptarnos a su selección, pero tenga en cuenta que debido a las estrictas limitaciones de capacidad y las restricciones de espacio en nuestro estadio, no todos los estudiantes podrían asistir a su ceremonia preferida. Si el espacio no nos permite programar su graduación durante su sesión preferida, se le programará para la sesión alternativa. Recibirá un correo electrónico verificando la hora programada para la ceremonia el miércoles 21 de abril. 

¡Gracias por su cooperación mientras planeamos conmemorar su tiempo en la Escuela Secundaria Cary-Grove juntos!
