Students at Bell County High School received a reality check on Wednesday when they participated in the school’s reality store. Students are given a random job and random living situation, which includes the amount of salary they have for the month. The students then must go to different booths, such as the utility, vehicle, child care and others, to purchase necessities. Pictured here are two students depositing their money at the bank.
