Advisory Board members were invited to share their life and work experiences at a special session of the monthly Job Readiness Seminar chaired by Peggy Lashbrook. The students heard stories about how Tom Iacoboni and Mitchell Brown developed their businesses, Mary Pat Clarke entered into politics and became a member of the Baltimore City Council, Carol Berman left her rural town in Illinois to become a speech pathologist, Don Riesett went from the Pigtown community to becoming a worldwide advertising executive, and Chris Mazzulli switched careers to work in information technology helping people with disabilities. Special invited guest Mike Gallo also shared his experience of rising from the streets of Chicago to becoming an executive in Minolta. The students were inspired by their stories and enjoyed the session as well as the private conversations after.
