Release Date: 4/19/2017

The University of the Ozarks' Enactus team won a regional championship for the 27th consecutive year during competition on April 8, in Dallas, Texas.

The U of O chapter of the student business organization now advances to the 2017 Enactus United States National Exposition in Kansas City, Mo., from May 22-24.

This year's team had 45 active members and completed seven projects, with 489 hours of community service and 6,025 individuals impacted. Among the projects the group took part in were Pro-English, a program designed to assist non-English speakers with English lessons, and programs to promote entrepreneurship and ethics awareness.

It was the 27th consecutive year that the University's Enactus team has advanced out of regional competition and qualified for nationals.

"I was so impressed to see the amount of community service that our Enactus members volunteered throughout the year," said Business Professor Dr. Rickey Casey. "They also did a tremendous job with their presentation at the regionals. To compete and win for 27 consecutive years is a testament to the dedication and talent of our students at University of the Ozarks."
