Undergraduate Hyperion Council Holds Sixth Induction for New Members
January 23, 2009
The Hyperion Council, an undergraduate student organization, inducted seven new members at a ceremony held on Jan. 23, 2009 in the James L. McLamore Executive Education Center.
The Hyperion Council focuses on developing projects to strengthen bonds between the local business and university communities. Each year, the council, initiates projects that link the university to at-risk communities and promotes important business concepts including market economics, entrepreneurship, personal and financial success, and business ethics to better themselves, their communities and their countries. One such project has been the UM Jamaica Project, which provides training to business women in The MSME Alliance in Jamaica to empower them to become more self-reliant and competitive.
In addition, this year, the council will begin assisting the American Red Cross to develop a new marketing initiative in an effort to improve its brand among 18 to 25 year olds.
Newly inducted members include Kalpesh Patel, Sara Michalski, Kyle Harke, Michael Bonan, Carl Mbao, Maite Diez-Canedo and Deborah Moss.
