On February 16, 2023, the foundation is thrilled to report the incredible impact made during the Black History Month career day celebration with the Chicago Blackhawks. We had the privilege of providing exposure for 30 students from our College & Career Readiness Cohort to the United Center, where they had a unique opportunity to learn about the National Hockey League and its various career possibilities. The Chicago Blackhawks generously provided a panel of discussion led by their Executive team, including the presence of their President, Danny Wirtz. This allowed the students to gain insights into the business side of the organization and the career paths available within the NHL. In addition to the discussion panel, the students were treated to a guided tour of the stadium, giving them a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a professional hockey arena. This experience was undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many of the students.
To top it all off, the students were able to watch the thrilling match, Arizona Coyotes vs the Chicago Blackhawks from the comfort of two sky box suites. Witnessing the game live and being surrounded by the excitement of the crowd added to the overall experience and left an impression on our students.
