McMillon was introduced by Ray Hobbs, president of Economics Arkansas and a former supervisor of McMillon at Walmart. The Walmart CEO talked about several principles he learned while working under Hobbs including that "you're responsible for everything. Take ownership of the issue and fix it. That has served me well my entire career."
Three student teams were recognized for being overall winners in the Stock Market Game. They were Waldron Middle School, Springdale's Lakeside Junior High School and Little Rock Christian Academy.
