WU Co-Op Director Speaks to Youth in Columbus, Ohio (636 hits)

COLUMBUS, OH May 14, 2008: Nationwide Children’s Hospital hosted an Education & Career Expo where Wilberforce University’s Director of Cooperative Education, Hardy Brown, spoke to inner city high school students about the importance of a college education. At this informal event comprised completely of African American students, attendees were asked questions regarding their plans for higher education and careers. When asked who planned to attend college, ninety percent provided a yes response. Male students were strongly encouraged to take their education seriously and apply for scholarships in order to deter them from becoming one of the typical societal statistics.
Current and formal Wilberforce University students were on hand to share their collegiate experiences and address student concerns.

Students were required to complete a Values Assessment in order to help determine what aspects of a career are most important to varying personalities. How important are these work values to you?
