A Message from Kathleen Plinske, President, Osceola, Lake Nona, and Poinciana Campuses
One of my favorite days of the year is when one of our students gets a chance to be president for a day. For the last two years, our Career Center has hosted a competition for students to be selected to shadow me for the day. While we’ve received feedback that the students enjoy the experience, I treasure the opportunity to spend the day with a student and learn firsthand about the challenges and opportunities that face our students.
For a chance to participate, students apply online and submit their resumes. Then, qualified applicants are invited to group interviews. All participants will receive personalized feedback on their resumes and interview skills. The process becomes progressively more selective with virtual interviews and group interviews until only one candidate will be selected to serve as president for a day on Monday, November 4, 2019. The day will include a celebratory luncheon, meetings and time to meet one-on-one.
The winner will also receive the following:
- $500 Valencia Foundation Scholarship;
- Letter of recommendation from the Career Center;
- Leather-style padfolio; and
- Interview survival kit.
