Walmart gives grant to UWG

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- Students in the Richards College of Business at the University of West Georgia recently learned about the business world from someone on the front lines.

Kelvin Hall, general manager for the Walmart.com facility in Carrollton, spoke to students on the university's ENACTUS team about career paths and current business trends.

"I was really impressed with the way the students were able to take their general knowledge about Walmart as consumers and link it with the corporate information Mr. Hall was providing," Richards College faculty member Monica Smith said after Hall's lecture.

In conjunction with Hall's appearance, Walmart gave UWG a $2,000 grant to split between its Center for Economic Education and its Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

"We are particularly grateful to Kelvin Hall and Jermaine Jackson of Walmart.com, who made this grant a reality," Dr. Faye McIntyre, dean of the Richards College of Business, said in a statement. "The vision is to prepare graduates for their economic roles as workers, consumers and citizens, and Walmart.com is a true partner in achieving that mission."

ENACTUS is an international nonprofit that brings together student, academic and business leaders who are committed to using entrepreneurial action to improve the qualify of life for people in need.
