Collegiate School Student Visits VSA

Collegiate School students are participating this week in Trailblaze, a pilot program established to connect rising seniors with Richmond-area alums working in various professions.

Students completed an application process to participate and 19 rising seniors were placed with businesses and organizations that fit their potential career interests.

Trina Clemans, Collegiate’s Director of Economic and Entrepreneurship Education, assisted with facilitating the program. She said participating in Trailblaze gives students an incredible opportunity to experience the realities of the workplace in a career field of their interest.

Collegiate rising senior Greer Buell was paired with Preston Williams, CPO ‘88, a prosthetist at Vascular Surgery Associates Mobility Center. She has an interest in nursing and Trailblaze offers a chance to get her feet wet.

“I thought this would be a great opportunity to figure out where to start,” she said. “I get to be with someone who is in the field and pick his brain.”
