CW Celebrates Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, CW’s National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) Club sponsored an event featuring three inspiring and successful guest panelists to speak to students about their careers and personal life experiences. The panelists included Westchester County Legislator Christopher Johnson, New Rochelle City Councilman Jared Rice, and CW’s IT Services Manager, Tracia Best. The Q&A session was hosted by students Crystal and Joseph who are also part of CW’s NABA Club.
The event was full of positivity and enthusiasm. Students were encouraged to get involved, be informed, learn about ways to volunteer, be part of the solution to overcome challenges in the real world and in their communities, and to strive for success!
