Net Impact wins national chapter award

For the second consecutive year, Ohio State’s Net Impact chapter, launched at Fisher, received the “Small Graduate Chapter of the Year Award” at the national conference held Oct. 28-30 at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.

“Though a young chapter, Ohio State University has made their presence known both on campus and in their community,” the national organization’s leadership noted in giving the award. “The chapter hosted high-impact events like a Sustainability Boot Camp and a Green Supply Chain Symposium and helped establish the first undergraduate energy and sustainability industry cluster at their college.”

“This is a great recognition for the OSU Chapter, which has continued to grow at an amazing pace over the last few years,” said Ryan Mulcrone, graduate president of Ohio State’s Net Impact. “It is largely through our partnerships that we have sustained our growth and presence in the Columbus community, and look forward to continued success in the future.”

Also during the conference, Fisher MBA candidate Christine Deye finished in the top five in the quick pitch sessions, a preliminary of the WalMart Business Plan Competition, which will be held in April 2011. Deye will be a member of the Fisher team competing for $20,000 in prize money.
