Lead To Succeed Meetup #4 Final Meetup of the Semester
We had the last Meet Up of the semester today, and it was awesome!
The day started with a Resume and Interview workshop designed to get students prepared for their next requirement - submitting a polished resume and participating in a Mock Interview with a professional community volunteer!
After the workshop, Terri Salzer from Milwaukee Public Schools came in to talk to Lead to Succeed participants about all the great MPS apprenticeship opportunities available to them in their Junior and Senior years at MPS schools. Terri has already received some follow up e-mails from students anxious to get started in pursuing an apprenticeship!
During lunch, the Meet Up Award for highest Lead to Succeed points earner was awarded to hard-working Marquan Whitelaw from Bayview High School. Congratulations again, Marquan. You certainly deserve that $50 Amazon gift card - we hope you enjoy it!
After lunch, students headed to the School of Freshwater Science, where they got a stellar tour of the building from Director of Development Eric Leaf. They head all about what it takes to get into the School of Freshwater Science as a graduate student. Plus, the students got to see all the amazing work in progress with fish, underwater ROVs, Quagga Mussels, you name it! They even got to board the School of Freshwater Science's research vessel, the Neeskay!
