The Entrepreneurial Spirit

Edina High School junior Mollie Mertes receives a Camp Enterprise scholarship.

Last November, Edina High School junior Mollie Mertes received a $1,000 Camp Enterprise Scholarship. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Edina and Edina-Morningside Rotary Club, Camp Enterprise is a three-day camp where students participate in leadership activities and learn about the free enterprise system. During camp, business professionals share their entrepreneurial experiences, and participants like Mollie take part in a business case study that results in final team presentations. “Camp Enterprise left me feeling inspired and intrigued about pursuing business in college,” says Mollie, who was chosen based on participation and leadership. She says she feels lucky to have received the award and plans on putting the scholarship toward her college funds.
