Rocky’s Enactus team brings home trophies from nationals
BILLINGS, April 15, 2015 – The RMC Enactus team brought home $5,000 and two trophies during the National Enactus Competition in St. Louis, Mo., this week. The nine members of the RMC Enactus team competed with 183 other Enactus teams from throughout the United States – many of which have more than 10 times as many members.
RMC’s Enactus team came in third place for their work with Walmart Women’s Economic Empowerment Project Partnership. After submitting a final impact report last month for their Workforce Women development program, the RMC Enactus team was initially chosen as one of the six finalists out of the 73 teams across the U.S. The third place spot for RMC’s Enactus team came along with a trophy and $3,000.
The RMC Enactus team also won $2,000 for their work in the 2014-2015 Care Enables Progress Topic Competition, which is sponsored by Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies. This topic competition was open to all of the Enactus teams in the United States, and RMC’s Enactus team was chosen as one of the eight finalists for their Workforce Women project.
“At the end of the day, the team won $5,000, two trophies, and a finalist plaque,” said Dr. Karen Beiser, the advisor for the Enactus team and also RMC’s Associate Professor of Business. “It was a good year for RMC Enactus, and I'm proud of the students and to be their teacher and advisor.”
