CCP Student as Luncheon Speaker
We were proud to have graduating senior and Career Coaching Program student participant, Mark Thurber, speak on behalf of the program during the 7th annual Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon on Friday, May 8. Mark, who received his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Human Resource Management last week, spoke to a crowd of nearly 450 business owners and community leaders about the importance of mentorship and giving back to your community and local university. His career coach, Heather Harvey, was also in attendance. Mark also shared the great news that he had recently accepted a new professional job, which he claims he would not have known about except through the program. These are exactly the kind of results we hope for!
Mark played a role in an overall program that featured the accomplishments and career achievements of local entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Jon and Becky Medved. The luncheon is a fundraiser for the UCCS College of Business alumni programs to include its Career Coaching Program, which alone will receive $5,000 from the event proceeds.
