Recipe for success: Hercules High’s award-winning student-run company sells cookbook, reusable bags

Final exams can be overwhelming for any student, especially the chief executive officer of a company with 120 workers.

But the hard work is paying off for Hercules High senior Joseph Fortuna and fellow classmates who operate Herban Movement, a student-run company that designs and sells educational products such as a cookbook and environmentally-friendly bag.

On Monday, the award-winning project from Hercules High’s Academy of Hospitality and International Tourism (AHIT) announced it has been selected to represent Northern California at the 2015 Junior Achievement National Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.
