Sponsor Spotlight: Direct Energy

We wanted to take a moment and extend our thanks to Direct Energy for their contributions to our team this Spring 2015 semester. Several professionals at the company came to guide our project teams during Work Nights. They gave our teams valuable feedback during their final presentations, and provided pizza for our teams. 

General member Paul Larson remembers Direct Energy's mentors being helpful to their Refugee Resources project team in Spring 2015. "They consistently encouraged our ideas, while presenting new angles on how to look at the problem or solution. They were an extremely valuable resource that I would look forward to working with again." 

Enactus President from Fall 2014 - Spring 2015, Jp Dowling, went on to intern with them in their Houston office this summer as a part of the Digital and Innovation team. "My time at Direct Energy has been such a learning experience," he said. "I spent the summer working on cutting-edge projects and meeting some amazing people. The workplace is collaborative and supportive, and the internship program does a great job of introducing you to all of that in 10 short weeks." 

Thank you, from our team to yours! We can't wait to work with you more in the future!

Sponsor Spotlight: Sherwin-Williams

We'd like to take a few minutes of our time to thank Sherwin-Williams for their support and enabling us to print t-shirts for our entire organization for the first time in years.

We also want to thank Jennifer Johnson for being the face of Sherwin-Williams on our Business Advisory Board. She attended our teams' final presentations in Spring 2015, giving us valuable feedback on our projects and insights into the professional world. 

Since receiving our shirts, we've worn them to Nationals in St. Louis, our Beach Cleanup in Galveston, our summer Officer Retreat, and project meetings. 

A big thank you to Sherwin Williams, from our team to yours!
