Puffer Reds participated in WCC's Washtenaw HBCU Day on the Building Black Wealth Panel.

The overall goal of the panel was to motivate the students to plan critically about life after school and to expose them to high successful business owners like Eric and Tandra Williams, and the other esteemed speakers. WCC wanted to let the students know that they didn't have to look to T.V. or social media all the time for inspiration, when they have entrepreneur examples right here in the community!

The lineup of speakers:

  • Janan McDougal - Owner of Printheadz
  • Derric Scott - Real Estate Developer, J29:7
  • Eric & Tandra Williams - Owners of Puffer Reds
  • Marcel Pearl - Commercial Real Estate Broker, ENCORE
  • Wardell Littles - Financial Advisor, Prudential
  • DJ BJ 3525 - Owner of Pizza Cat & Music Exec

The panel attracted over 400 students from neighboring high schools, and despite the inclement weather, the turnout was impressive. At our table, we presented the history of Puffer Reds to motivate aspiring entrepreneurs and included an interactive spin wheel to engage the students.
