Truman SIFE Team Wins at Regional Competition

Truman’s SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) team was recently named the third place winner at the ConocoPhillips Ethics Case Competition in Manhattan, Kan., Feb. 2-4. The event was developed and hosted by Kansas State University’s SIFE Team.

“The competition was an extremely rewarding experience. It allowed Truman State SIFE to compete against much larger, Division I schools and show just how successful we are. We are very proud to have placed third at this competition and cannot wait to return next year to improve upon this success,” Cody Hagan, Truman SIFE president, said.

Along with a third place plaque, the team also received a check for $1,000. The Truman SIFE team plans to put this money right back into the projects that they are planning. Every year the team organizes and puts on numerous projects that benefit the University, local community and surrounding area.

In this competition, participating students had 36 hours to utilize their business skills for analyzing, researching and developing a solution to a case about an ethical dilemma. After developing a solution, they created a professional presentation, which included a verbal script, visual slides and a written executive summary. Business leaders and university faculty served as judges for the event and evaluated the presentations.

Update from the President

The 2011-2012 school year has gotten off to a great start for Truman SIFE! We continue to grow in strength and numbers as an organization, and our efforts in the community continue to expand to help those who need it most. Currently, we have 63 active members within the organization, all of whom are essential to our success. Additionally, we have already completed a handful of projects and have many more to come!

As president of this great organization, I have been privileged to see everything this group is involved with. Especially rewarding has been witnessing the growth of several of our legacy projects and the creation of numerous new projects. Our members and project leaders have been excellent at putting together valuable, impactful projects that have greatly benefited many in our community. I firmly believe that our projects are making a substantial, lasting impression on many lives.

With the start of the spring semester, competition appears to be right around the corner. This year Truman SIFE is once again attending the regional competition in Chicago. One of my favorite parts of the year is competition time. For one, it gives me an opportunity to better meet additional people on the team. Additionally, I think it is extremely rewarding to see the culmination of our great work in a competition presentation. It is great to look back and reflect on the work we were able to do through our team’s efforts. I am very excited to present these efforts at competition, making Truman proud!
