Valdosta - Some South Georgia business students are among the best in the nation.

Valdosta State University's Students in Free Enterprise team was named to the final four at the national SIFE competition in Kansas City. Out of 800 teams in the nation, they were ranked third.

The group teaches business education to senior citizens and young people in the community. "We just have a really good program, our Sam Walton Fellow, Dr. Plumly, does a great job, we do a lot in the community and our students really enjoy what we do," said Casey Kennedy, SIFE Team Member. "We have one of the largest SIFE teams in the country and I think that's why we do so well."

The competition was judged by 150 CEO's from around the country. VSU's SIFE team also made it to the final four two years ago.
