The Shippensburg University Enactus (formerly known as
Students in Free Enterprise or SIFE) team returned to Shippensburg as winners
after participating in the Baltimore 2013 Enactus Regional Competition on March
22, 2013. The event was one of 10
Enactus USA Regional Competition being held across the United States.
The presentation team consisted of Jennifer Fourhman
(stepping in for Ryley Behm), Nicholas March, Amber Sherrock, and Brittany
Woodruff. Also in attendance were Brittany Lapp and Tracy Brenner. After
presenting a report of their year-long community outreach projects to a panel of
business leaders, SHIP Enactus team was named a SIFE USA Regional Champion in
the overall competition. The team will
now advance to the national competition at the Enactus USA Exposition May
21-23, 2013 in Kansas City, Missouri.
“I think we were all very anxious to find the results. Our
team members put in countless hours over the year, preparing for this
competition, and it showed. I couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished
this year,” said Tracy Brenner, President of Enactus.
“This program is excellent for
SHIP students since it provides them the opportunity to put theories to work
and apply written and oral communication skills, while assisting their
community and help making the world a better place. The team accomplished five projects serving
communities across the globe and their performance in Baltimore was
exceptional. “I am very proud of them
and their accomplishments during the year.
I am also very grateful for the support given to our students by the
Administration, friends, alumni, and business leaders, said Dr. John Kooti,
Dean and Sam Walton Fellow.”
