What Program Participants Are Saying...

It will provide me with personal insight into the mind of an established business leader as well as the opportunity to network and associate myself with other business people in the area. Through this program, Catawba College is showing it is committed to preparing its students for success both now and after they graduate. I feel honored to be a part of this exciting new program that should benefit Catawba business students for years to come."
- Derek Freeze, Student

The next day after the mentor luncheon, I met with my mentor at a Catawba event and we have already discussed plans for me to job shadow and also attend Rotary meetings. This is a huge opportunity for the business students!"
- Matthew Sossamon, Student

My wife Catherine and I have already had dinner, attended (Catawba’s) 'Lessons and Carols' with Isaac and discussed his business future. We look forward to other meetings."

- Joey Popp, Mentor


"It was an honor to be asked to participate in the mentor program. Much is expected from those to whom much is given, so I feel a deep obligation to share the little I know. Plus, I expect to get more from these young men. They have different skills and abilities, so I hope to learn from them. We are already discussing technology and social networking."

- Ted Goins, Mentor
