Heather Hill

 

Last year, JBU Enactus partnered with Heather Hill Clothing, a small children’s clothing boutique located in downtown Siloam Springs. While this was only a semester-long project, members on this project still have strong ties with Heather Lanker, owner and operator of HHC. We asked her to tell us what Enactus meant to her and her business:

“I first heard about Enactus when Clayton asked me to come speak to the middle schoolers about owning a small business. Enactus was putting on a conference for them. A few weeks later Clayton asked if I was interested in working with Enactus through their grant programs. Of course I said yes; I sat down with a few members and told them more about my business needs, they in return wrote up the grants to Coke & Walmart. We ended up winning both. My Enactus team was able to help me in so many ways. They took on the responsibility of collecting payments from past due orders, organizing and building shelving structures for my inventory, counted and labeled my inventory. All these things have led to me keeping up with the system which helps with time.”

We also asked her how she would describe Enactus to someone who had no idea what it meant:

“Enactus is a group of young business minded people who are willing to do anything to help a person in business. They are hard working, intelligent and organized.”

So, JBU Enactus members, how do we continue to build our reputation as a hard working, intelligent and organized group of opportunity enthusiasts?
