Junior Achievement Day
Paul Tychsen, a past TBP member, has asked me to let you know about a community service/networking event called Junior Achievement Day. “During this day, students from MSOE team with Accenture employees in a local grade school to teach real-life skills. This could be anything from counting change to tying shoes. I graduated from MSOE last year and am working for Accenture, an international consulting firm. Our hope is to recruit 5-10 MSOE students to help with the event. In doing so, we also hope to establish a stronger relationship with the MSOE community.
