Hey alumni! Now that school is coming to a close we wanted to make a shoutout to the great mentors that spent time with the students on the April 1st. Thank you Brad Snyder, Grant Milstead, Taylor Perez, David Olsen, and Eujin Kwak, you all helped the TMAA put on the best attended mentoring event yet!! We have continued to receive appreciation from both the students and the program office. We hope the students learned a lot this year and enjoyed the dialogue with the alumni. Congrats to all of the graduating students, and good luck to all of you start your summer internships, jobs, and other activities! ... See MoreSee Less
