Let’s Get it Started!!!
Congratulations 2010-2011 Young Executives of Color students! Session one got us all off to an amazing start on October 16th that was coupled greatly with the double overtime Husky Football Homecoming victory.
Major kudos to all of the Young Executives for showing such fantastic enthusiasm throughout the entire session, despite our insanely early start on a Saturday morning. All of the mentors were extremely excited to get settled into our individual groups and spend time getting to know their mentees. The creative spirit was clearly alive and well throughout the entire day. The freshness these high school students showed during our first team competition, the photo scavenger hunt, proved to be immensely entertaining. It was exciting to see the originality each team displayed in capturing each photo’s theme assignment.
Our next session is not until November 20th but the BEDC fellows will be keeping in regular contact with Young Executives - this is what makes the YEOC program such a unique program. Good luck to our YEOC Seniors on your upcoming exams, SAT/PSAT, big games, etc. Work hard, believe in yourself, and have fun! See you next month!
