Today’s class featured this statement from CVS Health Vice President, Donna Mumma. “I didn’t know much about Hope High School until I met and worked with Jean Rodriguez and Antoinette Muhammed during their internships at CVS last summer.
From that experience with Jean and Antoinette, I now associate their brand with the school they came from, your Hope High School, as one in the same – an impressive community of
hard working, intelligent, respectful and curious students who seek excellence. I look forward to meeting all of today’s Life Skills students who are interested in applying for this year’s internship and working with those who are accepted for the internship. And, I am confident and expect a continuation of the Hope High brand I have come to know from Jean, Antoinette and those of you I have met this year at Hope. This is why all of us at CVS Health are so excited offering another internship to this year’s class of Hope High School Life Skills students.“
Nice to hear. Donna’s statement about ‘brand’ reminds us all of the responsibilities we have to ourselves, Hope High School, the Life Skills class and, of course, our families in protecting our brand. As Oscar reminded us today when he shared the story of his recent recruitment to CVS Health by Lou Mercado,
it starts with personal brand.
A personal brand that connotes hard work, dependability (“on time all the time“), creativity, curiosity, respect and perseverance will create life time opportunities for success.
Following the CVS team’s presentation on the 2015 CVS Health summer internship for Hope High Life Skills students, networking among Life Skills students and CVS Health representatives took place.
