Student Success - James Daniels, Brookhaven College graduate and aspiring medical student, earned one of 10 full-ride transfer scholarships to Southern Methodist University for the fall. Involved in student government, Phi Theta Kappa and STEM Club while attending Brookhaven College, Daniels was comfortable speaking in front of audiences; however, when he was chosen for an interview for the scholarship, he called upon the Career Development Center for assistance. Brookhaven College staff members Annette Wilson and Adam Clawson drilled the scholarship hopeful by staging a realistic mock panel interview. Then, they provided feedback and constructive criticism about his answers and mannerisms. According to Daniels, this process provided invaluable information that allowed him to feel calm and confident for his real interview.
