Freshman Wins First Place in National Business Competition

Congratulations Maricela Castillo, Freshman Marketing major, for earning first place at the Credit Union National Society (CUNA) Mutual Framework for Opportunity Convergence and the Utilization of Sustainable Solution (FOCUSS) competition, held on March 10, 2017!  Dennis Kopf, Associate Professor of Marketing, collaborated with Maricela through the Research Apprentice Program at UWW.  What a wonderful opportunity for both Professor Kopf and Maricela to engage in the research process and be recognized for their hard work through competition.

Maricela earned her award for her presentation on “Unbanked and Underbanked Populations in the U.S.” She will present her research at the next national competition hosted by CUNA Mutual in Madison on April 19, competing against national first place winners.  Read the full article about her research at http://royalpurplenews.com/
