Go Inside the Office with our trailblazing C-Suite leaders, or learn a bit more about some of our fantastic youth pursuing excellence in school, work and life!
We were so inspired by the Inside The Office submissions we received during our #12DaysOfCSuiteChicks promotion earlier this year. In fact, we were grateful to use a random name generator to select our winner, because choosing based on merit would have been an impossible task! That said, we could not be more thrilled to have this beautiful, authentic "Ed Hustler" be our winner!
Meet Jaclyn Smith, a powerful educational advocate and fantastic human being. We love that Jaclyn shared a glimpse of her story here, and hope you have the privilege of meeting her one day to learn more of it.

Thank you, Jaclyn, for sharing with us!Read More
