Bryan McLaughlin’s extracurricular activities include keeping a sharp watch on the market. “Not the stock market,” says the 23-year-old Sobey School of Business student, laughing, “the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market.”
As the Director of Organizational Development for Saint Mary’s ENACTUS team, McLaughlin helped a local, small business increase sales and move from a cramped corner in the back of the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market to one of the large storefront spaces. His extensive community involvement, coupled with a cumulative GPA of 4.24, helped to earn the fourth-year Finance major a prestigious Frank H. Sobey Award for Excellence in Business Studies (valued at $15,000).
In his spare time, McLaughlin competes in case competitions, provides leadership as a member of the Commerce Society, and participates as a researcher with the IMPACT fund, the Sobey School’s student-run investment fund.
