“Our Enactus team (formerly known as SIFE) was able to raise $23,000 for sustainable clean water programs in Haiti. It is so exciting to be part of that type of work! This May, I was able to travel to Minneapolis with our presentation team for national competition. We were among more than 800 schools there, and Olivet was first runner up in our division!” Lauren Blunier, former SIFE president
