|National Guard rep talks to parents and students|
In December, it was about college costs as Project ENRICH sponsored a college financial aid workshop. January's session, held today, was about career as several guest speakers brought exciting messages about post-collegiate options working for Uncle Sam.
|Omega man Ambassador Taylor prepares to speak|
Not everyone is cut out for careers in Corporate America or in the traditional professions: law and medicine. Today's presentations exposed youth to often-undersold career choices in the U.S. government. The federal sector is sometimes mistakenly viewed as "mundane"and"unexciting." But the information that came out of Career Day showed student that a career with Uncle Sam can be adventurous and well-paying.
U.S. Ambassador Teddy B. Taylor, a member of Gamma Pi chapter, stirred students with his recount of a stellar career spent living in foreign countries, learning multiple languages, negotiating difficult international issues and working for the President and U.S. Secretary of State as a diplomat. A little more than a year removed from three years of service as U.S. Ambassador to the South Pacific nations of Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu, he challenged Project ENRICH students to take a world view of career options.
|Naval Academy Midshipmen address students|
The Naval contingent included several uniformed Midshipmen who each related their own experience and path to the Naval Academy. They talked about the free education, the service commitment to follow as well as he process for applying as well as getting recommendations. One of the Navy presenters was Keenan Reynolds, the school's current superstar NCAA-record-setting quarterback.
