Northwest Nazarene University’s Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) recently placed first in a national competition, winning $1,000 and a visit from Vice President of Global Walmart for Campbell Soup Company Timothy J. Toll on Monday, October 26 from 3-5 pm.
Toll has served in this capacity for the last seven years and is responsible for all Campbell’s product lines at Walmart. Walmart is Campbell’s largest global customer and represents $1.8 billion in sales. Toll currently serves on the Board of Directors of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and the Advisory Board for University of Arkansas. A native of Cleveland, Ohio, he attended Old Dominion University and received his bachelor degree in marketing. After graduation, Toll played professional baseball for the Chicago Cubs.
The Let’s Can Hunger competition asked participants to create a business plan detailing how they would create hunger awareness and relief in the upcoming academic year in their community. NNU’s team competed against teams from across the U.S. and plans were judged on sustainability and overall impact. Toll will address the student body and discuss the mission and culture at Campbell, his own personal career path, lessons learned along the way and Campbell’s partnership with SIFE in the Let’s Can Hunger challenge. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
This event is free and open to the public in the Helstrom Business Building’s Harter Lecture Hall located at 804 E. Dewey in Nampa. NNU SIFE will provide bins to collect canned food donations. For more information, please contact SIFE advisor Dr. Mark Emerson at email@example.com.
