Business Leaders Share Their Experience With Students

Friday April 29th was Career Day at Commercial Capital Company. We were joined by the 6th grade class of Rosehill Elementary in Lenexa, KS. Principal, Jen Duke introduced us to her students. Several prominent business men and women from around the city shared their experience and offered seasoned advice for this budding group of soon-to-be professionals.

Busy Day

Our office was a non-stop beehive of activity as the kids split into groups for several rounds of presentations throughout the facility. Business leaders from a variety of industries shared their success stories as the kids asked tons of questions. Student curiosity led to fun exchanges of ideas that kept our presenters busy and on their toes. 

Yay, Rockets!

We loved hosting the Rosehill Rockets and are grateful to these community leaders for sharing their time and expertise with the students.
