    Keefe Regional Technical School senior Daniel Quackenbush of Framingham was recently interviewed by WBZ CBS Channel 4’s Kate Merrill about his award-winning “What The Fish” app.

    Quackenbush, a student in Keefe’s Programming and Web Development CTE program, created and developed the app in his Entrepreneurship class during the 2017-2018 school year. He presented his concept at the NFTE New England Regional Business Plan competition in May, where he won the first place award of $1,500.

    According to Keefe Tech Entrepreneurship teacher Matthew Warren, his class curriculum teaches 21st century skills including collaboration, problem solving, creativity, communications and being socially responsible.

    I'm thrilled that Dan has created this plan and accomplished so much with it.  He is a brilliant young man and a great representative of Keefe Tech and all we do here,” said Warren.

    Quackenbush will present at the upcoming 12th annual NFTE National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge on October 11 in New York City, where 40 NFTE alumni from across the US who won their spring regional business plan competitions will compete.
