Congratulations to the Enactus Team of East Central University for winning first place in League 1 Early Stage Competition at the 2021 Enactus US Expo, April 8-12.

“I am so proud of my Enactus team. First try, first place. It doesn’t get better than this,” said Dr. Germain Pichop, primary Enactus advisor at East Central University (pictured far right in the back row). “Kudos to Nate Fountain, Aislinn Beak, Alexia Qualls, KerVon James, Joel Keith Nalere, and Madison Rehl. Now, you have earned the opportunity to present our project in October 2021 at the Enactus World Cup.”

At the Enactus United States National Exposition, teams showcased the collective impact of their innovative business solutions. Students presented their ideas and were evaluated by business leaders serving as judges who ranked them on how successful they were at creating impact and using business as a force for good.
