TTCU Helps Kids at College & Career Day at Wright Middle School, Nashville
On April 5, 2017, Wright Middle Prep hosted their 2017 Annual College and Career Day. Nashville business and professional leaders were on-site to meet with over 750 students from grades 5 through 8. This program was an effort to help orient the students toward various occupations, including an explanation of entry-level requirements, the pluses and minuses of particular jobs and most importantly, personal insights into each occupation. Ms. Thompson, school counselor said “the goal of the event is to lead the students to more informed career and life choices, there is nothing like hearing from the source.”
Ms. Carlisle, TTCU’s Business Development Manager (pictured on right), was there to share information about the various career choices within a credit union as well as to discuss the education and skills students could work on now to prepare them for a successful future.
Ms. DeWall, Community Achieves Site Manager at Wright Middle Prep states “We are so grateful to these professionals for the service to our students. We never know what small moments can change a kid’s life.”
At TTCU, we are proud to support community and educational activities like this one. Our purpose is to help strengthen the communities in which we work and live. We do this through our passion of helping children, teachers and local schools.
