Garrett Shepherd, a kindergartner at Little Turtle Elementary School, participated in a nation-wide initiative to teach children how to run and operate a lemonade business.
Students were given a booklet to follow and specific instructions. Shepherd had to complete a business plan, create a menu, build a booth and serve customers as part of the program.
Shepherd said he intends to use the money he makes, after he takes out his expenses, to purchase a video game.
Pictured is Shepherd (right) and his father, Marty, operating the lemonade stand on Saturday.
