Dear South Hills High School Counselors & Business Teachers,
We are both college graduates and had previously spent many years in the corporate world. We both are passionate about training young professionals in a career in real estate, especially with the increasing costs of college tuition. We wished there would have been mentors who encouraged us to explore a career in real estate after high school and that is why we started this program 5 years ago!
We are not looking for quantity but a quality group of graduating seniors who will be living locally after graduation or attending college nearby. Candidates should like working with people, be a self-starter and a go-getter, possess self-discipline and be entrepreneurial in spirit. Ideally, they would like to work for themselves with unlimited income potential rather than corporate environment.
Please feel free to reach out to any of us with questions along the way! We appreciate your continued support of our training program for your high school seniors! KW sells one billion dollars of real estate a day worldwide! Please pass along this amazing opportunity to your deserving student!

Hello from Recording Workshop!
Young adults with a strong passion for music technology have a more diverse (and confusing… and costly!) mix of educational choices than ever before.
Here’s some clarity:
In 1977, Recording Workshop pioneered certificate training in music recording and audio production. In 2018, Recording Workshop remains the leader in effective, affordable, concentrated “hands-on” career prep in this profession.
For those that help guide young adults on their educational journey, I want to offer some quick info about Recording Workshop:

I am pleased to share with you the wonderful news that La Roche College has been authorized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education to become La Roche University, effective immediately.
Becoming a university is the fulfillment of a vision that many on campus have shared for several years, and is recognition of how far La Roche has come. What began as a school for religious women in 1963 with seven students in its first graduating class is now a university that offers 66 undergraduate programs of study, six master’s degrees and one doctoral degree. More than 14,000 alumni live in every state in the U.S. and in 65 countries around the world.
University status will support a growing student population and new academic programs, and it will help La Roche market its offerings to students unfamiliar with its reputation, both domestically and abroad. Additionally, the creation of the La Roche University Lifelong Learning Center will provide academic enrichment and other experiential learning opportunities that enhance the lives of local residents.
As a university La Roche will continue to stand firm in its mission and core values of inclusivity, integrity, determination, compassion, inspiration, justice and peace. La Roche will build on its rich history and what it is already known for – educating students to be lifelong learners in an increasingly diverse and global society.
The future is very bright for La Roche. We anticipate that our strong levels of enrollment will continue to grow and diversify while honoring our traditions and heritage as a Catholic institution. La Roche is indebted to our founders, the Congregation of the Sisters of Divine Providence, and to all of our supporters whose faith in our mission has brought us to this exciting crossroads in our history. God bless you and thank you for your support.
For further information on our transition to university status, please visit laroche.edu/university.

My name is Timothy Richardson and I am a member of the Health Sciences Department at Allegheny Health Network. We focus on providing enriching learning experiences for a variety of students from high schoolers to para-professional students. Allegheny Health Network is a dynamic institution that fosters an environment of innovation and discovery across eight hospitals and hundreds of outpatient facilities in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
We are offering an 8 – week Summer internship program –the Healthcare Discovery Program. The program invites 30 high school students to receive hands-on experience in our Pittsburgh area hospitals. The high school students are given the opportunity to work and observe in clinical and non-clinical areas of the hospital, managed by 6 college students along with the Health Sciences Department. The Discoverers will be afforded the opportunity to undergo learning experiences at our STAR Center, along with hands-on experience and observation in our hospitals.
We are looking to begin recruitment for our 30 high school Discovers for the Summer, and we are ideally looking for students who have a future interest in Healthcare. The Discoverers must be a current Junior or Senior, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, and be spending their summer in the Pittsburgh area (eligibility is outlined in the flyer and application).
If you could be so kind as to share this opportunity with your students, I would appreciate it. The flyer and application are both attached to this email. Have your students submit completed applications to Malissa Seman, Malissa.Seman@ahn.org, by 11:59pm on Friday, March 29, 2019
