ETSU student Entrepreneurs’ Club welcomes Ron and Sonja Bennett


JOHNSON CITY (September 25, 2013) — The East Tennessee State University student Entrepreneurs’ Club will welcome Ron and Sonja Bennett as its speakers on Monday, Oct. 7, at 5 p.m. in room 334 of Sam Wilson Hall.

The Bennetts, both ETSU alumni, founded Elite Manufacturing and Professional Services Inc. in 2012 to compete with traditional staffing companies as well as with larger contractors in the region.

The couple will address, among other topics, the process of building their own business, becoming designated a “Woman Owned Business” at the state and federal levels and what that means, why they are passionate about what they do, and their general plan for the future.

The public is invited to this free program. For additional information, or to arrange special assistance for those with disabilities, contact Mitzi Brookshear at or (423) 439-7444.
