Enactus Students BNY Mellon
Three University of North Georgia (UNG) students from the Mike Cottrell College of Business were selected to participate in the 2017-2018 BNY Mellon Enactus Student Fellows Program.

Three members from the University of North Georgia’s (UNG) Enactus team have been selected to participate in the 2017-2018 BNY Mellon Enactus Student Fellows Program.

The Enactus Student Fellows program is designed to help top Enactus students improve their ability to create and present higher quality projects that have lasting impact as well as to better prepare the students for successful careers.

The program is open to Enactus students across the United States, and 150 students were chosen from around the country this year. Grayson Anthony, Jose Del Rio Lopez and Jenny Toussaint from the UNG Enactus team were chosen to participate.

“We are proud to have three students in the newly expanded program,” said Katie Simmons, associate dean of students and undergraduate programs in the Mike Cottrell College of Business at UNG.

Selection was based on the student’s resume, engagement with their Enactus team, history of leadership, and an essay on why the student should be selected.

“Through Enactus, you can tie community service to entrepreneurial action and to the business world,” Lopez said. “We get to meet many people with other ideas and opinions.”

As an international organization centered on entrepreneurial service-based projects, Enactus strives to transform these opportunities into impactful progress for individual communities. The organization consists of over 1,700 teams in 36 countries.

The UNG team has been named regional champions in annual Enactus competitions for more than 20 years, and in 2017 the UNG Enactus team was declared a grand prize winner at the United States Enactus National USA Rally of Champions.
