During three consecutive years the SIFE-UFM team has won the Students In Free Enterprise National Championship against other Guatemalan universities.

The achievement was repeated recently, on June 7th 2006 when, besides the first place, they got four trophies for: their outstanding work teaching financial skills, for their outstanding work teaching entrepreneurship, for their outstanding work diffusing free market principles and for their outstanding work teaching how a free market economy in a global environment works.

During his visit at the Francisco Marroquin University, on July 24th 2006, Soderquist and a group of his foundation and directives from the John Brown University gathered with the three time champion team, and with UFM directives.  Among the visitors were Charles Pollard, president of John Brown University and Joe Walenciak, professor of that University and visiting professor at the UFM Business School.

During his stay at this house of studies they were received by UFM’s President Giancarlo Ibárgüen S., the General Secretary, Ricardo Castillo A.; and UFM’s President emeritus, Manuel F. Ayau; and attended at the Business School by Vice-Dean Sergio Enríquez.

Soderquist and his team are in Guatemala to share their experiences during a Leadership convention sponsored by G&T Continental.
