Two East Central University students – Mackinsey Archer, of Choctaw, and Yashna Arnold, of Washington, Oklahoma – took first place in the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) International Pitch Competition held recently in Houston, Texas. The pair pitched “The Hairy Hotel,” a luxury pet boarding business that solves the dilemma of where to leave a pet when going on a vacation or business trip. The hotel offers a setting in which pets stay in a comfortable room with individual attention and group playtime. Pictured left to right are Arnold, Archer and Dr. Stacey Bolin, assistant professor in the Harland C. Stonecipher School of Business and director of the Wilburn L. Smith Center for Entrepreneurship.
