Tech Students Attend Enactus Summit

Arkansas Tech University College of Business students Sarah Casey and Kayla Potts had the opportunity to learn more about their chosen profession earlier this month at the Enactus Northwest Arkansas Partner Summit.

The students, both members of Enactus at Arkansas Tech, were selected to be among 45 students to attend the summit and receive a status update on the Enactus organization, meet with industry executives and take part in several networking opportunities.

“The Enactus Northwest Arkansas Partner Summit was a wonderful opportunity to network with business professionals,” said Sarah Casey.  “I enjoyed learning about the retail industry and all the opportunities that are available for college students. It was a great way to represent my Enactus team, as well as my university.”

Enactus is a non-profit organization with hundreds of chapters on college campuses throughout the world.  Its goal is to create a more sustainable world through the positive power of business.

Enactus is a student organization in the Arkansas Tech University College of Business.
