Lewistown Students Complete Capstone Projects
Business Administration: Management & Marketing students created “Be You-tiful Boutique.” The idea is for their business to provide an atmosphere that delivers excellent customer service as soon as customers enter their store. Their goal is to serve many different markets as their inventory would include a broad selection of items such as clothing for women, men, and young children, shoes, jewelry and accessories, and other unique accent pieces.

Information Technology student, Daryl Wilson, built an internal water cooling system for a computer tower from scratch. This piece of equipment is an all-in-one tower with an internalized reservoir. Daryl successfully completed the project spending only $88, using a variety of tools and parts.
