A team of students from the American Indian Business Leaders at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College in Cloquet took first place in the national conference and competition this year in Anaheim, Calif. Students also finished third in the business plan development competition.

The national American Indian Business Leaders Annual Conference and Competition is a college-level business competition between tribal colleges, community colleges, and four-year universities.

The team's business plan and presentation focused on the business strategies of Kaffiend's Korner, the student-operated coffee shop on campus. Students have been successfully operating the coffee shop since December 2005.

Students representing Fond du Lac this year included Andy Angell, DeAnna Benjamin, Russell Brown, Glenda Eargle, Niccole Grover, James Hamelin, Faye Henigan and Ashley LaFriniere. The club's faculty advisor is Bryan Jon Maciewski, business Instructor at the college, with support from Sara Montgomery, Great Lakes American Indian Business Leaders advisor at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College.

Students were recognized with a special award for having the most people register as potential donors during a national bone marrow drive effort sponsored by the National Marrow Donor Program and the business leaders national organization.
