The Saint Augustine's University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team was named "Rookie of the Year" at the 2012 SIFE USA Regional competition, April 2, in Atlanta, Georgia.
"Our rookie team was extremely excited to give their presentations to a packed room- uncommon for rookies," stated Valerie Evans, SIFE faculty advisor. "The entire team worked very hard, developing and conducting the projects that took us to the regional competition. Next year we are determined to make it to Nationals!"
Participating SIFE students use business concepts to develop community outreach projects, such as their 2011 collaboration with NC State University's University of Textiles' Fashion Group, in which the Falcons helped teach young girls at the Raleigh Girls Club about the fashion industry and its relevant educational paths.
