Venturesome students find inspiration during PFEW

The Foundation for Free Enterprise Education held its final session of Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (July 31-Aug. 5) at Penn College, bringing more than 300 high schoolers to campus to hone their communication skills while being exposed to the concepts of teamwork, cooperation and leadership. The students stayed in campus housing, ate meals in the Keystone Dining Room and Capitol Eatery, and spent a whole lot of collaborative time in Klump Academic Center classrooms and auditorium. With galvanizing speakers and interactive learning exercises, PFEW provides a real-life educational experience for industrious students – each of whom is sponsored by a private-sector benefactor. Throughout the week, the students replicate the responsibilities, rewards and challenges of managing a corporation, marketing a product, and satisfying shareholders and customers alike. Among those on hand to guide and inspire the students was college President Michael J. Reed, who delivered a keynote address during a General Assembly on Tuesday afternoon.
