By Christy Lennon, senior HR Partner
(Christy Lennon recently penned this article for another outlet about “Project Dream,” which started in 1999 and continues to find success, providing work experience for a special group of students.)
When I was first approached about the “Project Dream” program in 1999, I was fascinated by the concept. The idea was to place high school students in the “Occupational Course of Study Programs” in either unpaid or paid positions on a college campus so they could obtain “real world” work experience while also receiving credit hours towards a high school diploma. I thought to myself, “How can I make this work?”
Beth Ritchie, community-based training coordinator, and Sandra Courtner, job coach for the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools system, were not shy in asking me to do just that for a program still in its infancy. At that time I was manager of Human Resources for the Graylyn Conference Center. We were certainly on a tight financial budget, as many businesses were, but I wanted to learn more.
Congratulations to Kathy J. Hines for 30 years of service to the University. Hines is assistant to the dean at Wake Forest University School of Law. Find out who else is celebrating a milestone anniversary.
