CedarStone President Bob McDonald with Justin Duncan, Willie McDonald, and CedarStone EVP Hank Stuart
All seniors in Metro Nashville public schools participate in a “capstone” experience. A capstone experience is a project that allows students to learn about themselves by exploring a topic of interest, specialization, community need, or career choice. According to the Tennessee graduation requirements, all students must complete a capstone experience which may include a senior project, virtual enterprise, internship, externship, work-based learning, service learning, and community service.
Justin Duncan, a senior at McGavock High School, has chosen to create his “capstone” experience at CedarStone Bank. He will be spending at least 40 hours with us, documenting his experience in a portfolio of his research, observations, and new skills. Through his English class, Justin will be writing a 2,300-word research paper
