President Geruson teaches AP Economics students about HGP as a business
Holy Ghost Prep president Gregory J. Geruson ’79 guest-lectured to both sections of Tom Murtaugh’s AP Economics class on January 5th about the business of running the school.
His presentation—entitled “HGP as a Business”—covered a number of relevant topics, including the local educational marketplace and the competition the school faces, a snapshot at how HGP allocates its annual budget, as well as some insight into HGP’s overall product, price and value.
“Having Mr. Geruson speak with my AP Economics students enabled them to see how the concepts they are learning in the course apply right here at Holy Ghost,” said Murtaugh. “We use real-world examples in class all of the time to better understand economic concepts, but having Mr. Gersuson explain how he puts economics to work for Holy Ghost provided the students with a greater appreciation for the value of the economic principles they are learning.”
Murtaugh, who plans on having another guest speaker during the spring semester, truly believes in the power of outside speakers sharing real-world knowledge in his classroom. During the 2015-16 school year, Murtaugh had Ray Glemser ’79, CEO of Glemser Technologies, speak to his AP Economics students about his business.
