Students participated in The Next GEN, Career Day 2011 today at Link. Dr. Michele Scott, who volunteered her time and energy to produce this program, designed it to help students understand the wide variety of work and career opportunities available and to broaden their aspirations, through the sharing of career decisions and pursuits by a number of adult professionals. The panel included professionals from government and law, entrepreneurship and small business, education, sports, arts, entertainment, public and social affairs. The day ended with Roman Oben, a former NYGiants football player
who spoke to the students about his experiences and the importance of education and perseverence in reaching for one’s goals.
