Edwards team takes 1st place in four categories at JDCW 2012
Release Date : January 19, 2012
The Edwards JDC West team performed remarkably well at the 2012 competition in Edmonton this past weekend. This is a multi-university, multi-team undergraduate business competition and it was hosted this year in Edmonton. Last year – and who can forget! – it was hosted in Saskatoon.
Our Edwards team took first place in four categories this year: finance, human resources, athletics and charity!
Congratulations to the Edwards finance team (Adam Stewart, Jamie Prefontaine, Matthew Bennett and coach Brian Lane), the HR team (Tyler Webb, Krystal Aulie, Mitch Tainsh and coach Marc Mentzer), the athletics team (captain Brayden York, Natasha Miller, Diana Bourque, Tyler Haldorson, Nathan Thoen, David Martell, Colin Kikcio, Sheylee Belanger and coach Chris Hengen-Braun) and Justine Daum for leading the JDC West team in the charity component.
The JDC Co-Chairs deserve special mention: Well done, Jared Fingler and Matt McIntyre.
A warm thank you and congratulations as well to Faculty Co-ordinator Trevor Maber for his work in Comm 498, preparing all teams for the competition.
We are grateful to Murray and Heather Edwards and to Federated Co-op for their ongoing support of the Charity event through generous matching donations programs.
Congratulations to all on those firsts! And our very best wishes to all the participants and their coaches for creating such a memorable experience for students.
We believe in developing business professionals, and these competitions surely sharpen our skills.
