Can you imagine adults so excited to share their work that the energy felt like being at an elementary school show & tell? Isn't that the dream we have for our students' future careers?
Felsburg Holt & Ullevig
were our hosts for a career discovery dinner at their offices in centennial.. Laughter, synergy, teamwork, joy, and of course discovery best describes the night.
Chris Fasching began the night, running us through an interactive traffic demo that immediately united the students and parents in laughter and problem solving.
The parents were taken to the Maroon Bells conference room to discuss schooling and strategies that lead to working at in industries like Felsburg Holt & Ullevig
. Questions were asked and advice was offered that helped everyone sort through he complicated path from high school to career.
Several employees prepared discovery stations that students rotated through. Each station provided an up-close and personal dive into the diverse work done at Felsburg Holt & Ullevig
One of our rural partners, Bennett High School
, brought a few students as well. FHU's work can be see throughout the state, including in one of most iconic places in Colorado, Garden of the Gods.
Just as impressive as the amazing work that FHU does was their collaborative spirit and teamwork. Seeing this team united to inspire students was nothing less than a miracle.
Mr. Shallenberger was able to demonstrate that you're never too old to learn. He had some help from the students and Ashley.
Sometimes the teachers that make a difference a simply those who share their talent and joy for what they do.
Despite a few bad jokes, Alex Pulley's leadership is indicative of FHU's commitment to community. We are now a part of the Felsburg Holt & Ullevig
family. The ring leader for the night has to be Sarah Love. Thank you Sarah for making this possible.
We hope this event starts a movement in learning and offers hope to building community at STEM and across the nation.
Together we can Build Ships!
Thank you for partnering with us! We’re all feeling on top of the world this morning.
