CWs Enactus TeamThe College of Westchester (CW) Enactus team participated for the first time and was awarded “Rookie of the Year” at the Enactus United National Exposition regional competitions in Washington, D.C. Enactus is an international organization that connects student, academic and business leaders through entrepreneurial-based projects that empower people to transform opportunities into real, sustainable progress for themselves and their communities.

Jimmy Hernandez, CW Enactus team member stated, “Competing in the 2016 Regional Competition was a great experience, and the start of a new beginning for The College of Westchester Enactus team.” CW students presented their projects and were evaluated by business leaders serving as judges who ranked them on how successful they were at using business concepts to improve the quality of life and standard of living of those in need.

The students were accompanied by CW Faulty moderator, Professor Paulo Cancro who celebrated the joyous victory with her team. The team and Professor Cancro were later congratulated by President Mary Beth Del Balzo on behalf of the entire CW family.
