Jenn Halweil is an entrepreneur with experience in marketing and business development. While studying Media Communication and Electrical Engineering at NCSU, she met Joseph Weil and Will McGuire, who all developed a company to bring the community together. Her goal was to raise environmental awareness, as well as raise money for local charities. Halweil's goal for Legacy is to expand the service learning program, which provides college students with hands on professional experience, as well as open Legacy chapters throughout North Carolina. "Five years from now, I envision Legacy chapters across the country, ten years from now, maybe even internationally."
