Our next round of High School of Business project presentations are coming up, and the CareerConnect team would appreciate your attendance! Students recently visited Stanley Marketplace to learn about innovative and responsible development, and groups will be pitching their proposals for developing a space inside Stanley that would benefit the Denver and Aurora communities. Authentic feedback from a professional audience is a vital part of this process for our students, and your participation will enrich their experience.
The event will be on March 14, with three different time slots to choose from. Please sign up to attend a presentation session using the form HERE, and share the information with any other industry/sector partner that would like to contribute to a great event and have a valuable impact on the students of Denver. For more information, please contact Gideon Geisel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of our GW freshmen are doing a service project fundraiser to raise awareness for dogs and cats who are in need of help. The students chose Max Fund as the charity they wanted to support. If you would like to help, you can locate boxes around the school, in the Front Office, and near the Auditorium. Max Fund will accept donations of blankets, dog and cat food, and other items for pets. For more information, please check the flyers hanging in the GW stairwells. Thank you!
