Nearly 50 area Boy Scouts earned the Entrepreneurship Merit Badge on the campus of Lindenwood University recently at a one-day event sponsored by the Duree Center for Entrepreneurship.
The Center, which is part of the Hammond Institute for Free Enterprise, collaborated with the Greater St. Louis Area Boy Scout Council and the Foundation for Economic Education to hold this training session on campus. Long-time serial entrepreneurs, Rick Duree [in featured photo, second row, right] and Andrew Tessmer [in featured photo, second row, left] were guest speakers.
“This event was a huge success thanks to our partners, and the scouts were very engaged. We hope to make this an annual event,” said Craig Felzien, director of the Duree Center for Entrepreneurship [in featured photo, third row, right].
