Five Evangel University students have been selected as Regional Finalists for the “Enactus USA Leaders of the Year” program. A total of 30 students from 444 U.S. Enactus teams were selected as finalists for three categories.
The students will be recognized at the Rally of Champions at the Enactus USA Exposition in Kansas City, on Sunday, May 20.
- Joshua Clark, senior from Willard, Mo., is a finalist for the Executive Leader of the Year.

Enactus advisors and students from all U.S. Enactus teams were encouraged to submit nominations by April 19.
The Enactus staff then selected a total of 12 executive leaders, 8 Human Resource Leaders, and 10 Project Leaders to be the Regional Finalists. One from each category will benamed the National Leaders of the Year.
Evangel is the only university that had five students selected as regional finalists.
“These five student leaders represent the outstanding work done by all 79 members working on 12 projects this year,” said Bernie Dana, EU’s primary Enactus advisor. “These roles in Enactus enable them to develop leadership experience and skills while impacting the lives of people on the campus, community, and globally.”
