Marie Wright, a fourth year marketing student in StFX’s Gerald Schwartz School of Business, has been named Enactus Canada’s 2016 Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champion for Nova Scotia. Provincial champions coast to coast were named Feb. 16 by Enactus Canada, this country’s largest student leadership development organization, and program supporter, the John Dobson Foundation, as part of the Student Entrepreneur National Competition.
She will compete against three additional Student Entrepreneur Provincial Champions from Atlantic Canada for the regional title and the chance to move on to the 2016 Enactus Canada National Exposition in Toronto, ON taking place May 2-4. The national champion will receive a $10,000 cash prize and take home the John Dobson Cup.
Ms. Wright says during her first year at StFX, she was hired to work for the StFX Video Team (XVT) under the Marketing and Communications Department. She says creating video content for StFX tremendously increased her portfolio and has given me many opportunities. “I am proud to say StFX is the place where it all began.”
