The BSC students were among only 35 enactus students selected from thousands of nominees to attend the two-day event that brings together members of the enactus National Advisory Board and administrative leaders from numerous Fortune 500 companies. Powell and Joseph met presidents, CEOs, CFOs, and Human Resource Directors from firms including Time Life, Wells Fargo, Chase Bank, J.P. Morgan, Walmart Central, Bic, Hershey, Grow America, and Nielson.

"The entire experience was amazing," Powell noted. "We met and networked with business leaders in a variety of settings. They got to know us and we got to know them.

"My lasting impression of the enactus Partner Summit is that it underscores what enactus can do for students," Joseph added. "Now we have a greater appreciation for what it takes to be a business professional."

While at the enactus Partner Summit, Powell received an internship offer from Wells Fargo and Joseph was offered a regional sales position by PitMotorLTD.
