Last Thursday, the Net Impact Club hosted our very first BBQ of the quarter. As is the GSM’s culture, food served were bought from local sustainable sources. Delicious homemade condiments and sides were also served to accompany burgers and hotdogs. Delicious! Way to go, Net Impact!
Two very important announcements were made during the BBQ.
Important Announcement 1: Recipients of the Net Impact Public Interest Internship Fund were named! The Public Interest Internship Fund helps first-year UC Davis Graduate School of Management MBAs spend their summer working for a nonprofit organization while earning enough to pay basic living expenses. This Fund is entirely student-run through Net Impact and is made possible by donations from the GSM community. Each year, classmates voluntarily donate 1-2 days pay to the Net Impact Public Interest Internship Fund. The donations are collected and allocated through an administrative review process based on merit and need. Recipients are students pursuing unpaid, or low paid, internships with non-profit or mission-driven organizations.
This year, our winners are John Churchman and Filippos Stavrinidis!! Congratulations to the two winners! They most definitely deserve the funds they are receiving from Net Impact.
Important Announcement 2: It was Matt Auman’s birthday! As always, he will again turn 18 this year! Happy Birthday, Matt! Hope you had a great one (filled with no studying, lots of food and beer, good friends and the best jokes of the quarter.. *wink*)!
