The East Tennessee State University student Entrepreneurs’ Club will welcome Pal Barger as its speaker on Monday at 5 p.m. in the ETSU Innovation Laboratory classroom.
Barger will share his experiences as an entrepreneur. He is the owner of Pal’s Sudden Service, the local restaurant company. The enterprise was honored with a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, bestowed annually by the President of the United States. The awards represent the highest honor in the nation for manufacturing, service, small business, education and health care. Of the five awards presented in 2001, Pal’s was the only small business and the first restaurant company to receive such distinction.
The public is invited to this free program. Directions to the ETSU Innovation Lab can be found by visiting www.etsu.edu/maps. For additional information, email Mitzi Brookshear at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 439-7444.
