Three CMU Students Attend Enactus Partner Summit

Discuss growth and best practices of international organization

Three Central Methodist University members of Enactus United States (formerly Students in Free Enterprise) were recently selected to attend the Northwest Arkansas Enactus Partner Summit, according to Professor Julie Bennett, Enactus Sam Walton Fellow, who accompanied the students.

The students are Sophie Wilensky, a senior communications studies major from Plano, Texas; Jordan Meyer, a senior accounting major from Albuquerque, N.M.; and Keely Zimmerman, a sophomore business major from O'Fallon, Ill.

The summit was held in Bentonville, Ark., on September 10-11 and brought together members of the Enactus United States National Advisory Board, representatives of partner companies, and a total of 45 Enactus students from universities and colleges across the country.

The summit was designed to allow members to contribute insights on the strategic growth of Enactus United States; to participate in roundtable discussions of relevant business topics with students and executives; and to share best practices on how companies are building win-win partnerships with Enactus.

Julie Bennett is associate professor and chair for the Division of Accounting, Business, and Economics at CMU. The three students were nominated by her and approved for the summit by Enactus.
