Yesterday, I went to an Education That Works mentor luncheon at Memphis Catholic High School (they gave us coozies, hence the above picture!). Dear readers, I don’t know if you all knew this, but we have four interns from Memphis Catholic. The school’s Education That Works program, which is in its sixth year, is designed to prepare students for their futures in the professional community (aka, “the real world” that teachers have referred to since the beginning of time). As part of this program, Memphis Catholic students intern at over 80 organizations in the Memphis area and are able to experience hands-on learning about the work world.
If you know of a business that would benefit from participating in the Education That Works program, please contact Mimi Uhlmann at 901-569-1206.
In other news, CMOM’s 2nd annual Monster Bash is this Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.! We’re super excited about it. There will be fun crafts, goopy science experiments, a staff costume contest, a drawing for free membership…and some fun surprises! Be there!
