Congratulations to Bradley G. and Doug S. for being named March 2012 Mentor/Mentee of the month.
Brad first became an eMentor in 2008 when the program first began.
He was in graduate school earning his K-12 School Guidance Certification. “I am not currently in the school guidance field but I still have the desire to help young students succeed and grow as individuals and become productive members of society. Being an eMentor helps fulfill that desire. When I am able to help a student out in any way, I feel like I help make the world a better place. Reading emails from my mentees that say stuff like, “Wow, I never thought of that before!” or a simple, “Thank you for helping where others have not.” is what drives me to want to help more.”
Doug, a senior at Apollo Ridge High School, is a self-motivated, well rounded student who participated in eMentoring in his “Senior Internship” class.
“I had a very good experience as a PA eMentee. This program has opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that are out in the world. I learned that I do not have to decide on a career right away and that it is very important to make sure what you choose is something that you truly enjoy. My overall experience was positive and I’m glad I was able to participate in the program.”
Congratulations Doug and Brad! Thank you for your exceptional effort and dedication to this program.
