Goshen College students win top prize at convention

GOSHEN — Three Goshen College seniors placed first in a national business competition held Nov. 1-4 at the Mennonite Economic Development Associates annual Business as a Calling Convention in Niagara Falls.

Senior business majors Kristina Lopienski, Clayton Miller and Hans Weaver edged out second place finishers from Bluffton University in a student case competition to develop a business plan for Winterfeld Greenbau Construction Company from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, according to a press release form MEDA.

Business owner Will Winterfeld said he was thankful for the solutions presented by the seven student teams.

“It was a great opportunity to hear new perspectives and innovative ideas on how to solve some of the challenges I’m facing,” Winterfeld said. “I encouraged the students to not only seek a vocation in their field of study, but to also seek an avocation to use their passions to help build a more just world. All teams should be commended on their efforts and their professional presentations because it made it very difficult to select a winner.”

The convention had more than 600 attendees and focused on the theme of “Sharing Risk: Cascading Returns.”
