Southern's Enactus Team Wins Regional Competition

Friday, April 19, 2013

Southern Adventist University’s Enactus team made its 7th consecutive win at the Enactus regional competition on April 2 in Atlanta. Enactus team members Chelsea Coston, junior financial management major, Nathan Clute, junior business administration major, Carlos Rosales, junior psychology major and Steven Oliveira, sophomore management major, presented the three projects the team has worked on extensively this school year.

The projects included Enactus working with Women at the Well, an addiction rehabilitation program in Athens, TN, in which the team helped to rebrand the organization’s identity, enhance their education program, and more. For their Let’s Can Hunger project, which received grant funding from Campbell’s Soup, the team committed to raising 5,000 pounds of food to help alleviate hunger in the community. Finally, for their Gen Link project, Enactus connected students with community members to meet temporary assistance needs such as yard work, errands, and tech support.


The team will be presenting their projects again at the Enactus national competition on May 21-23 in Kansas City, MO.
