SBC students tackle gridiron to benefit Alzheimer’s Association

Students in the Sweet Briar College fall 2010 business management lab are hosting powder puff football games from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7 at Babcock Soccer Field. The senior class will be taking on the junior class, and the sophomores will play the first-years.

The event is a fund-raiser with all proceeds benefiting the Alzheimer’s Association. Powder puff jerseys and t-shirts are available through the business management lab for $15 payable by cash or check. Snacks and refreshments will be provided at the games. For more information, e-mail sickelbaugh13@sbc.edu.

Each semester, students in the lab apply management fundamentals learned in the classroom by planning and executing a series of projects to raise money or awareness for charities of their choice. They operate like a business, with individuals taking on executive and support roles, such as CEO, marketing officer and treasurer. The class emphasizes leadership, motivation, communications, organizational change and conflict resolution.
