Staff, Students Invited to Meet Governor, CEOs
by Jennifer Donovan, director, public relations
When Anne Dancey, a biomedical engineering student from Texas who is minoring in chemical engineering/polymer science, meets Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and a number of CEOs of major corporations at a program in Southfield this Thursday, Nov. 3, she plans to tell them why she has chosen to stay in Michigan when she graduates next spring. She's already accepted a job with Chrysler Corp. in the Detroit area.
Dancey has been invited to meet Governor Snyder and the CEOs of a number of large corporations at a special event called "Keeping Our Educated Youth in State."
The program will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at Lear World Headquarters. Representatives of each public university have been invited to network with elected officials and business representatives, and students were asked to submit questions to the Governor.
Jim Turnquist, director of Career Services, and Jeff Kangas, assistant director, will accompany Dancy. Gov. Snyder will be the keynote speaker at the event.
Dancey, who is from Duncanville, Texas, asked: "What initiatives does the state plan to implement or continue in the future to support the education of women in STEM fields at both undergraduate and graduate levels?"
