Our Sponsors

In order for an organization to grow it needs the support of its surrounding community. Luckily for our chapter, we have that encouragement from not only students and professionals but other amazing businesses that aid in growing the mission of WISE.

We all want to continue to see the message reach further and touch as many people as possible. This is only possible through our continued collaboration towards a unified goal. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Kristi Butler, our Sponsorship Chair.
