Three UWindsor grads vying for chamber’s “rising star” award

The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce named three alumni of the University of Windsor as the finalists for its “Rising Star of the Year” award in advance of the 23rd Annual Business Excellence Awards dinner, to be held April 24 at the Ciociaro Club.

The rising star award recognizes a professional or entrepreneur under 30 years old seen to be “on the rise,” demonstrating potential as a future leader in the Windsor-Essex community. This year’s finalists are all UWindsor grads: John Blanken (BComm 2006), Fabio Costante (BComm, MBA 2008), and Sarah Davidson (BA 2011).
