Creating a new generation of entrepreneurs is one of this country’s greatest needs; that is why we are so excited to open the scholarship process to a new class of young entrepreneurs. Each year, the quality of applicants who have pursued the scholarships is extremely impressive and this year, our expectations are even higher. We at the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation could not be more confident in our next generation of business owners. Any high school senior with a budding business and an innovative spirit is encouraged to apply.
The National Federation of Independent Business Young Entrepreneur Foundation (YEF) awarded budding business owners its highest honors, naming Lei Lei Secor the 2014 Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and Zach Haney, the inaugural Dan Danner Leadership Award winner. As the winner of YEF’s top two prizes, Ms. Secor, who resides in Hagaman, NY, will receive a $15,000 educational scholarship to attend the University of Virginia, and Mr. Haney, who resides in Topeka, KS will receive a $15,000 educational scholarship to attend Washburn University.
