Senior Taylor Ann Price at Senior Signing Day (Rachel Ellison)
As early signing period arrived last month, the college football world anxiously anticipated the commitments of high school athletes to our favorite schools. Here at Culverhouse, we held our own early signing period that generated just as much buzz within the school.
On December 5th, the Career Center at Culverhouse hosted its first "Senior Signing Day" to celebrate the recent hires of nine Culverhouse December graduates. Below is a list of the graduates and the companies they will be working at:
Gretchen Pokrant - Regions Bank, Houston, TX
Taylor Ann Price - Lamar Advertising Corporate, Baton Rouge, LA
Emily Garbutt - Deloitte, San Francisco, CA
Fernando Garcia-Heredia - GM Financial, Fort Worth, TX
Catherine Ogletree - Stanley Black & Decker
Elisabeth Robinson - Acuity Brands
Amirah Joiner - United Rentals, Inc., Phoenix, AZ
Madison Mullinax - PwC, Chicago, IL
Marissa Akers - Hanon Systems, Montgomery, AL
Also in attendance were Culverhouse students graduating in May and Arts & Sciences student Anthony Berry who has accepted a job with the Congressional Black Caucus. Director of Career Management, Susan Cowles was impressed with the crowd gathered for the initial event.
"This is the first time we have hosted this event but plan to do it again in May. Students seemed to enjoy hanging out and talking about their future plans, meeting other students and learning about what they will be doing after graduation," said Cowles.
If this winter's event is any indication, the "Senior Signing Day" in May will be just as big a success, if not bigger. For more information, contact Susan Cowles at firstname.lastname@example.org
