Annette Wilson positively impacted the lives of approximately 700 Dallas ISD high school students this past month.
Students in the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism and Academy of Finance at Thomas Jefferson High School participated in the “Brookhaven College Career Camp of the Future” Jan. 28-Feb. 19. Annette, director of career services, led the camp and provided students with information and ideas about job interviews, professionalism, appropriate dress, etc. to help them plan their future careers.
Representatives from the high school stated that the camps “made a tremendous impact on our students and their futures.” The students themselves gave the camp a glowing rating – 95 percent said the camp “hit the mark.”
Students were vocal about their approval and thanked Annette for providing the valuable information. Through a camp survey, several students commented that they learned new skills, particularly the value of professionalism in job interviews.
Marilyn Lynch, associate vice president of career and program resources and Dallas ISD Business Advisory Board member, connected Annette with TJHS.
