When it comes to doing things in the community there is nothing more that we like to do then help out as much as we can. On yesterday I got a call for Mr. Cedric Lafleur who I met a few years ago to talk about things he was working on for Washington Marion.

Well coming up on March 1st. There is another great event that he will be spearheading and I will be lucky enough to be apart of this as well. The event is called Success Panel: Cross The Line featuring 4 different sessions aimed at educating the young minds out there in our city.

 

Young Minds Exploring Healthcare - Healthcare industry leaders will be discuss the pathway to careers in healthcare, the latest trends in healthcare and answer student specific questions.

So You Want A Job - Leaders from multiple industries will serve on panel to discuss career path options either directly from high school or post college.  Panelist will engage and challenge student thought process and discuss factors that could hinder career options.

All I Want Is Money - Moderator and panelist with finance expertise will help students understand how to read a prospectus statement, what is a mutual fund and what are the key indicators of a good mutual fund. We will look at the current stock market trends.

Am I Ready For College? - This session is designed to explore with the students the things/action steps they need to take in order to be ready for college.  ACT/Financial Aid/Interviews/etc….  Each student will receive a copy of the new book, “The Ultimate Survival Toolkit”.
