Spotlight on Student Volunteers
Purdue students share their EBV volunteer experiences working with the veterans:
"The program is truly a two-way street when it comes to who is doing the learning and teaching; it goes both ways. I came away from the experience with some new role models, friends and a better understanding of social entrepreneurship." - Purdue Junior Lawson Roth
Lawson Roth, from Evansville, Indiana is a rising junior in the Krannert School. He is majoring in Management and Accounting with the Certificate in Entrepreneurship. In the fall he will start his first co-op rotation with NASA.

"EBV has taken the central focus of my life at Purdue. It has reconfirmed my beliefs and has given me numerous avenues to follow my philosophy. It has made me more focused on fulfilling one of my dreams - to open a school in my country. EBV has given me a platform to work on my ideas and at the same time, make a difference, even a small one, in the lives of the people who gave up theirs to protect us. I feel truly blessed and proud to be a part of this noble initiative.” – Purdue MBA Student Zenita Subba
Zenita Subba, from Bhutan, will graduate in May, 2013 with a Krannert MBA. She has concentrations in Human Resources and Strategy. She is doing her graduate assistantship with the EBV program.
