On February 16, 2017, in honor of Presidents’ Day, 25 top senior executives gathered at TCA’s Upper Campus for the First Annual Presidents’ Leadership & Career Day. Business leaders from the healthcare, financial, and other industries shared their on-the-job experiences during visits to classrooms, giving students the opportunity to discover how their day-to-day learning can make a difference outside the classroom walls.
Each classroom had two to four leaders speak to students about their job and career while also offering valuable life lessons about education and the world of work. A sampling of topics covered included:
- 4th graders learning how to introduce themselves and give a powerful handshake;
- 7th graders learning about the important role banking and finances play in college and life; and
- 8th graders learning how to create their own “brand essence” to promote themselves in high school applications and throughout life.
TCA is honored to have had these leaders from the greater Brockton region join us. We deeply appreciate their time and investment in our students as they reach for their dreams at TCA and beyond.
Thank you for participating in the First Annual Presidents’ Leadership & Career Day!
