Student Puts Skills to Work at Conference
Dec 09, 2011
Columbus student Jeffrey Mayer recently had the opportunity to put the business skills that he learned at National to use at an area conference. Jeffrey is a student in the business administration program and he attended the conference as a participant. The goal of the conference was to promote communication and collaboration between neighborhood groups, community partners, and local government. The conference allowed members of the community to have discussions about neighborhood practices. Additionally, it permitted neighborhoods to form relationships with one another.
Jeffrey believes that his participation in the conference boosted his understanding of business ethics and he feels like he is better prepared to serve his community, something he plans to do upon earning his degree. “I learned firsthand how to conduct myself in a professional setting,” Jeffrey remarked after returning from the event.
In addition to adding to the professional skills that he learned from National, Jeffrey also got the chance to meet Michael Coleman, Mayor of Columbus. He and Mayor Coleman spoke about Jeffrey’s recent work with Rezilyantz, a non-profit organization in Columbus that provides assistance to felons. Mayor Coleman was impressed with Jeffrey’s work and encouraged him to continue with his efforts.
