In addition to handling the disruption of the pandemic, Logan Geraghty led his University of New Brunswick team through a split which allowed for the creation of Enactus St. Thomas University. Despite losing half of their projects and members Logan kept team spirits high by introducing new professional development opportunities and projects. He also led the development of a new project called Rocket Trade which was able to help beneficiaries change their net worth by a total of $20,000 over a few months. Through his leadership, the team was able to take home Runner up in the CWB Financial Education Challenge and Second Runner up in the Scotiabank Climate Action Challenge.
