HANES DOES MT. EVEREST: Hanesbrands Inc. will be sending a high school student on a cultural adventure to the Mount Everest base camp this spring. The student will join Expedition Hanesbrands to “help inspire others to use the symbolism of the world’s highest peak to set their own life goals,” said a Hanesbrands spokesman.
Expedition Hanesbrands will select one student from Carver High School in Winston-Salem, N.C., along with a school chaperone and a parent or guardian, to make the three-week trip in May to Mount Everest base camp in Nepal. The selection process will be finalized in mid-February.
