Mentor Program 25th Anniversary
Posted by Joseph Phillips, Jr. on Monday, October 6, 2014 at 10:27 PM PDT
The 2014-15 Albers Mentor Fair took place on October 2nd. This is the 25th year of our Mentor Program, and during that time over 4500 students have benefitted from the wisdom and guidance of over 1000 mentors.
The event started in the PACCAR Atrium, with some 300 students, mentors, faculty, and staff in attendance. The atrium was full of energy as students and mentors networked, in anticipation of the "speed dating" meetings between mentors and students in Pigott Building classrooms. The high energy level illustrates the high level of engagement of our students, faculty, staff, and mentors.
This year we expect over 150 mentors and over 300 students to participate in the program. Our thanks go out to mentors past and present for their support of our students. We especially thank Jesse Tam, who has been a mentor for all 25 years of the program, and Willie Aikens, who has been a mentor for 24 years.
We also want to thank our program sponsor, PACCAR, and the staff of the Albers Placement Center, who oversee the program. Thank you Mary Lou, Hannah, Bethany, Megan, and Paula!
Here is to another great year for the Albers Mentor Program!
