Incredible Outreach: Preston, England
The students, led by Drs. Karen and Wayne Jacobs, were challenged to put their business knowledge to work on this trip. Over the last semester, they prepared three workshops for small business owners, each of which they presented this week. The ailing state of England’s economy means times are tough for small business owners, and many of them have had little professional business training.
In the down time between workshops, they’ve partnered with Preston’s Heritage Church to beautifying the local community by collecting trash (or rubbish, as the Brits call it) from local parks so children have a cleaner place to play.
Today is the team’s last official day in England, so they’ll soon be saying their goodbyes to the friends they’ve made and boarding a plane back to Texas. Visit the LETU Schoolof Business facebook page to view more photos or read a recent news release to learn more!
