Hello, my name is Brett Benjamin, and I am a Senior Finance major at Shippensburg University. Throughout my time at Shippensburg, my roles encompassed serving as the Vice President of the Investments club, leading as the President of the Circle K International Community Service club, being an esteemed member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honors Society, and actively participating in the National Honor Society of Leadership & Success. Additionally, I had the privilege of being nominated as a Note Taker for students with disabilities and serving as a Supplemental Instructor for a college science course. Notably, during my first two years of school, I managed to balance these commitments while being a Wide Receiver for the University Football Team.
