For some kids, their senior year in high school is all about enjoying prom and the last few months before college starts. For Sawyer Howitt, his senior year has been all about refining and growing his entrepreneurial goals. Sawyer Howitt is a Portland-based entrepreneur and racquetball player, and a project manager at The Meriwether Group, which provides finances and growth support for emerging startups.

Howitt has served as a director for several philanthropic organizations that are committed to developing a better world for women and minorities. He has also mentored at-risk teens, and completed several business and finance internships.
