The now-annual Donuts and Drawing supplied students with coffee, donuts and an opportunity to register for seminars and other services offered through the 360 Center such as resume reviews, mock interviews, financial coaching, success planning and career coaching.

“This event connects local businesses with the Sorrell College of Business in an effort to provide SCOB students breakfast at no cost and give them a chance to learn how the 360 Center can help them better prepare to successfully compete in the global workplace,” said Preston Pritchett, a lecturer in the college and program coordinator for the 360 Center.

This year’s program was supplied by Trojan Donuts, which donated 10 dozen donuts, and is co-owned by freshman Sorrell College student and entrepreneur, Anthony Tzanahua. He also co-owns Rike’s Tacos in Troy and Ariton, and a roofing company with his brother Rikelmer and his parents.

Students registering for professional development were entered into a drawing for TROY gift baskets.
