This morning I was at school at 5:30am to prepare for the school district’s Business Partnership Breakfast. I was proud to attend with my colleagues and three students from Huskie Robotics, FIRST Team 3061. We and our partnership with Navistar were being recognized. While addressing those in attendance, I focused on the mission of FIRST and how business partnerships go beyond the financial support that allows us to participate and be competitive and connect employees to students through mentoring. One of the students then shared her experience working with various mentors at Navistar. She did a fantastic job. We ended our presentation with a brief demonstration of last year’s robot. Since last year’s game involved frisbees, the distribute gave everyone in attendance a “business partnership” frisbee to take home!
