Doing good by doing business, Enactus teams move to national championships

The Enactus Windsor team—led by president Andrew Moukled, mentored by professor Jim Marsh and supported by drama instructor Meaghen Quinn—made an impressive showing recently at the organization’s Central Canada Regional Championships.

Enactus Canada is a community of student, academic and business leaders enabling progress through entrepreneurial action. At the Regional Championships, students showcased their community outreach projects and business ventures to demonstrate their social impact in Canada and beyond.

The winners will move on to the National Exposition taking place in Toronto in May.
