SNHU’s Go-Getters Challenge
Gives Final Three Contestants Opportunity of a Lifetime

Promotion will enable one contestant to earn a free Global M.B.A.

Please visit FOX25 to watch the final interviews and to vote for your favorite candidate

Manchester, N.H. (Oct. 27, 2008) – Sandra St. Fleur of Belmont, Mass.; Jenn Allen of Mexico City, Mexico; and Kate Kaplan, of Derry, NH, have moved on to the final round of Southern New Hampshire University’s Go-Getters Challenge. The Go-Getters Challenge is a promotion that will give one contestant an opportunity to earn and complete a free Global M.B.A. The three finalists appeared live on “FOX25 Morning News” on Monday, Oct. 27, to explain how an SNHU Global M.B.A. will impact their lives.

Viewers have an opportunity to vote for their favorite contestants at Fox25. SNHU will announce the winner on Friday, Oct. 31, at a news conference on campus.

The campaign was unveiled on the “FOX25 Morning News” Sept. 16 broadcast. Contestants were required to write a 500-word essay explaining how a Global M.B.A. would impact their lives. SNHU staff and faculty members served as judges and selected six semi-finalists. On-campus interviews followed and the field was then narrowed to three.

The winner will have the option of completing his/her degree on campus, on location or online, or a combination of the three.

“The ideal go-getter for us is someone who is goal-driven and willing to put in the time and effort to improve his or her life and the lives of those around them, but perhaps hasn’t had the opportunity or resources to get to that next level in their education,” says SNHU President Paul LeBlanc. “Education has been the fuel of the American Dream and this is our way to help someone realize the transformation that is possible.”
