Coca-Cola representatives stopped by the Barksdale Boys and Girls Club to hold workshops on marketing and focus groups. This event, inspired by club member Ondreya Grant who approached Eileen Thanner from Coca-Cola, consisted of three different classes. The sessions included a company overview, exposure to the different job opportunities and college scholarships, focus groups on how teens feel about brands and stores, and the type of research that Coca-Cola conducts on consumers and products.
