Leaders from throughout the state will be sharing stories about the lessons they learned from their early days on the job with students at Mountaineer Montessori School.

From Toyota West Virginia President Millie Marshall selling the rocks from her yard to the neighbors to University of Charleston President Ed Welch working on the maintenance crew at his high school, success in West Virginia starts in many different forms.

The school’s “Lemonade Day With the Stars,” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 3 at Capitol Market will raise funds for scholarships and specialty programs at the school. “Lemonade Day” is a nationwide initiative launched in Houston in 2007 to give children the skills and opportunities to start and run their own businesses, and more than 1 million children in 100 cities are expected to take part.

Mountaineer Montessori has been surveying leaders about their first jobs and inviting local VIPs to work along with the students as mentors and “celebrity” servers. The advice and lessons will be put together in a children’s book.
