It’s the season to give thanks. And here at STEM Premier, there’s a lot we have to be thankful for! It’s been an awesome year full of new opportunities and new friendships. We believe it’s important to spread the attitude of gratitude, so here’s just a few of the accomplishments, organizations, and people we’re grateful for!
We’re thankful for our growing population of hundreds of thousands of middle school, high school, and collegiate-level users across the country who use our platform to discover and connect with opportunities every day.
We’re thankful for the 200+ colleges, companies, and organizations such as Penn State, College of Charleston, Boeing Aerospace, Cummins Turbo Deisel, HOSA - Future Health Professionals, and FIRST Robotics who're providing scholarship, educational, internships, apprenticeships, and career opportunities to our amazing users.
We’re thankful for all the teachers, counselors, and career development specialists who've graciously partnered with us and allow our team into their classrooms to educate students on the power of building their professional online presence in this digital age.
We also asked some of our team members here at STEM Premier HQ what they are thankful for this season. Here’s what they had to say!
Sarah Musser, Partnership Strategist
For the dedication of Charleston Southern University’s Admissions team who are always looking for new ways to connect and relate with students. I am thankful to have clients who care so much about their current students and the future of their incoming class.
For the Girl Scouts of the USA. Through our partnership, I have spoken with women from South Carolina, Texas, New York, Indiana, and many other states, all with a universal goal of helping connect talented young women with college and STEM-focused job opportunities. As a former girl scout myself, it has been so special to help these eager young women build their impressive online portfolios. The future of women in STEM is bright!
Rebecca Craig, Engagement Team
For my wonderful colleagues at SC Ports for helping us educate students on regional workforce opportunities and for giving our wonderful Charleston students a great place to work and a solid career path.
For The Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce who have worked so hard in providing work-force skills and experiences to students in the Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester school districts through coordination of teachers and businesses. They are true warriors for the greater good of Charleston and for helping our students secure the brightest futures possible.
Valerie Keller, Engagement Team
For the STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice who allowed us to present STEM Premier to a community of educators and influencers. To be in the presence of so many folks across the country who are involved in promoting STEM ecosystems and ensuring student success was an honor.
For the University of Pittsburgh for their collaboration in reaching out to top talent throughout the U.S. and for joining the community of four-year colleges helping to build STEM Premier.
