Feature Fridays have arrived! Feature Fridays are a new segment of our blog in which we plan to periodically highlight people, places, and things that we think you might like to hear about! All features will in some way, shape, or form hold special meaning to us as well. We want to kick our first Feature Friday off with Sam Beesley and Destiny Manh, two students who both attend the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Both Sam and Destiny are a part of a student team that we have been working with since January 29th via the Magelli Office of Experiential Learning out of Gies College of Business.
Each semester, companies are invited to sponsor a student project team to solve business challenges and build a talent pipeline. Students work with Fortune 100 companies, mid-sized businesses, startups, and small businesses like our family's!
We submitted a marketing related project and have since been equipped with a number of new ideas from our student group (The Power Walkers) that we are looking forward to implementing in the coming months. We feel pretty lucky to be working with such an intelligent group of students attending our alma mater and owe them many thanks for their hard work thus far this semester! Today, we are pleased to introduce you to two of the students from our team, Sam & Destiny!
