“If it wasn’t for Thomas College and the Entrepreneurial Club this [TreeFreeHeat] would have never started. I became a national winner. I started my own business and was involved with clubs. It was more than just school, it was fun. At age 22, I’ve had success and I have employees. I have a business and a waiting list for my product.”
