Fayette teacher recognized for advisor role


Teachers often go the extra mile for their students, and Angela Mangham Hutcherson at Sandy Creek High School is no exception.

Hutcherson, who teaches banking, investing and insurance, knows how important it is that her students learn how to make their money work for them so that they can have stable financial futures. This year she advised her students in the Wharton Global Investment Competition offered through the Wharton Global Youth Program at the University of Pennsylvania. The program recognized her with a certificate commending her role as an advisor during the 2020-2021 competition.

Teachers have a lot on their plates as it is, add the pandemic to the mix and what has always been a hectic job is now 1,000 times more so. It would have been easier for Hutcherson just to concentrate on getting her students through what has been a pivotal school year, but she is not one to rest on her laurels.

In the Wharton Global Investment Competition, educators play an essential role as active team advisors by providing guidance to competing teams, and serving as valuable motivators and instructors. Hutcherson makes sure that her students enjoy the challenge, while building their knowledge about the meaning and application of investment concepts.

In addition to serving as an advisor in the investment competition, she is also Sandy Creek High’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) advisor.
