This award is a culmination of high-achieving students working together to develop themselves, classmates, and the community in which we live,” said Todd Fridline, president of UM-Flint’s Entrepreneurs Society.
The title of Global Chapter of the Year is given to the organization that demonstrates excellence in developing its organization, its leaders and offering a comprehensive entrepreneurship experience for members.
