Cedar Grove Middle School in Decatur, Georgia held it’s “Career Day” on Thursday, March 17th. I had the pleasure of representing Greene Legal Group and Fans Favorite Fan in front of 5 classes. Students had a chance to ask questions about what I do in GLG law firm as well as what I do daily in sports media with Fans Favorite Fan. I shared with the students about how Social Media is a huge part of my jobs at both Greene Legal Group and here with Fans Favorite Fan. Typical questions about who I’ve worked with came up and I was able to share my Fan Experiences with them as well. It was also a pleasure meeting professional football players Defensive Back Demario Dixon (overseas player) and Washington Redskins Running Back Mack Brown. Both players went from classroom to classroom sharing their college and professional football experiences.
Student-athletes had the opportunity to ask them questions about how important character is and how education can open many doors for them when they are no longer able to play the sport they love. As the Student Support Specialist Mr. Wesley White stated in our Career Day letter, “The career information that you share with our students will be very valuable in broadening their knowledge of the world of work. Young people need to know what it takes to be successful in the career they choose.” It’s important to reach back and share our paths with these students because success doesn’t come easy. There is no sure path to success! You must create a plan for the career you want and be willing to put in the work. Happy to see professional athletes give back while still putting in work!
