Enactus Students Distinguish Themselves at Western Regional Exposition

The Enactus Western Regional Exposition was held on March 12th & 13th. Our students distinguished themselves once again thanks in part to Wendelin Fraser’s hard work and dedication to the team.  While I know the students are very talented, there is no doubt that they also benefited significantly from Wendelin’s coaching and guidance.

Not only were the group of 42 students from Mount Royal University outstanding ambassadors, the team received four awards for their efforts.

  • 1st Place – Scotiabank Eco-living Challenge
  • 1st Runner Up – TD Entrepreneurship Challenge
  • 1st Runner Up – Capital One Financial Literacy Challenge
  • HSBC Woman Leader of Tomorrow Award – Individual Award to Paisley Dressler
There were also 12 former ACE/SIFE/Enactus Mount Royal students at the event but participating now as judges, volunteers or organizers.  Several of those Mount Royal students who were with the SIFE Mount Royal team in 2001 are now leaders in our community, operating their own businesses and still volunteering.
Gratitude is also expressed to Paul Varella, James Stauch, Ray De Paul, Valerie Kinnear, Douglas MacDonald, Anne Stone, Carolyn Sterenberg, Wayne Stewart, Jim Campbell and Martha Taylor for supporting the team this year.
