Senior Wins NFIB Young Entrepreneur Award

The  National Federation of Independent Business Young Entrepreneur Foundation named 12th grader,Yosef Gersten, as a recipient of one of its 2011 NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards.   The program, which awards between $1,000 and $10,000 scholarships to the award winners, is designed to reward and encourage entrepreneurial talents among high school students.  Those who know Yosef, whether through his Four Corners Video Production operation or any of his other assorted endeavors, know that he certainly fits the bill.

More than 4,500 students nationwide applied for a YEF scholarship this year and only 131 scholarships were awarded.   Of those, 7 were from the state of Tennessee and Yosef was the only winner from the city of Memphis.
