JBU SIFE Students to Appear on National Television

Siloam Springs, Ark. (February 20, 2009) — The John Brown University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team have been invited to participate in the question-and-answer talk show, “America Talks,” on Tuesday, Feb. 24 from 8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Members of the team will take turns talking about the many projects that they are involved in with SIFE. Such projects include the SIFE Coffee House Project, the Open Doors project and JBU’s broader outreach into the Washington County Detention Center. “With all of the bad news in the world today, it is encouraging to see a generation of young people who are passionate about making a positive difference in their world,” said Joe Walenciak, JBU business professor and SIFE instructor. “JBU SIFE is a great example of the power of people who set their minds and hearts on doing the right thing.” This will be the fourth time that the JBU SIFE team will be on “America Talks.” Their first opportunity to participate came when Billy Stevenson, director of international programs at JBU, was approached by Carlos Pardeiro, chief executive officer of SafeTV®. The experience allowed the team to share with the local and international community the outreach programs that SIFE was working with as part of ADVANCE Guatemala. “America Talks” is a production of SafeTV® in Springdale, Ark. The show will be broadcast live via the Internet at www.safetv.org and on SkyAngel cable television. America Talks has reached more than 13 million homes throughout the world by its affiliation with the SkyAngel network.
