Barbour well-represented at annual camp

Barbour County was well-represented at the opening of the annual Free Enterprise Camp at Camp Horseshoe on June 9.

The camp offers a week of experiences which provide leadership training and an introduction to small business, and is supported annually by the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce. The camp depends on volunteers from business and industry to staff its program and underwrite its activities.

Brenda Hunt, past president of the Barbour County Chamber of Commerce, presented the chamber’s yearly contribution of $1,000 to Camp Director David Cooper; campers Jenna Burnett and Lilly Busdeker; Alderson Broaddus students Daniele Hoffmaster and Travis Sharp Jr., who work on the summer staff; and the chamber’s Executive Director Dr. Donald Smith.

Burnett is a junior at Philip Barbour High School, historian of the Student Council, and a former soccer player who will run cross-country this year. Busdeker is secretary of Philip Barbour’s Student Council, vice president of the Future Business Leaders of America Club, and a member of the Key Club. Senior music major Hoffmaster is treasurer of ABU’s Campus Activity Board, treasurer of NOVO, a community service organization, a member of Phi Kappa Delta sorority, and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota music fraternity. ABU junior Sharp is a psychology major and member of the Baptist Campus Ministry Leadership Board, the Board of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and runs track and cross-country for the university.

Hunt and Smith served as judges for the morning Entrepreneurship Workshop.
