Brockport Rotary supports student for Young Entrepreneur’s Program 

By on May 26, 2013

Brockport Rotary Club president Doug Clare (r) presents a club banner to local Young Entrepreneur Program scholarship recipient Shawn Enos of Brockport.

Shawn thanked the members for his $1,000 scholarship and described the experiences which will hopefully allow him maximum success as he begins a business career.

The Young Entrepreneur Program provides real life teaching and experiences designed to help high school students (Shawn is 15) create their own business. The program utilizes representatives from the business community to teach, mentor and test the students chosen for the program in everything from creating a business plan to presentations skills needed to pitch that plan to panel of successful business people.

Shawn’s project/business was named Rocket Motor Sports (dirt bikes). He was given $200 by the program to support setting up a website and creating a logo. However, Shawn has decided that this project will go to the back burner for now so he can utilize his newly acquired expertise with his family’s new pizza shop in Gates.
