Enactus finishes another successful year

Mount Mercy University's Enactus team, formerly known as SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise), finished another successful year this spring. The team was named regional champions at the Enactus United States Regional Competition and competed in the 2013 Enactus U.S. National Exposition in May. This was their first trip to nationals in three years.

Mount Mercy Enactus is one of more than 500 programs in the United States. Students use business concepts to develop community outreach projects, transform lives, and shape a better, more sustainable world. Mount Mercy's Enactus team organized nine projects in Cedar Rapids, which included working with many small businesses and non-profit organizations. Enactus President and Mount Mercy senior Kim Moorman said it was an exciting year for the team

"We had some great projects this year that had tremendous impact in our community," Moorman said.

Moorman was the recipient of two scholarships through her work in Enactus this year. She received $2,500 from the Jules and Gwen Knapp Scholarship and $1,000 through the Emerging Leader Award. The Jules & Gwen Knapp Enactus Scholarship recognizes leadership, teamwork and communication skills developed in the Enactus program. Through this scholarship, Moorman has been named a Knapp Enactus Student Leader for one year and may represent the organization at events throughout the year.
