Wednesday presentation to coax students to choose a career field

For immediate release
February 27, 2006
Three guest speakers will give Abilene Christian University students who have not declared a major a proverbial nudge to help them decide on a career path Wednesday from 11 a.m. to noon in Room 115 of the College of Business Administration.
    The speakers include:

  • Joyce Dalzell, director of FaithWorks,
  • La Shae Grottis, director of student multicultural enrichment at ACU, and
  • Mike Winegeart, assistant professor of marketing and director of business development at Expat-Repat Services, Inc.

All three speakers will share how to choose a career using your spiritual core as a guideline, said Wayne Miller, assistant director of Career and Academic Development. The event will be a good opportunity for students to get a hindsight view of discerning one's calling and to learn to listen for their own career and spiritual callings.

Dalzell said she hopes to provide reassurance and encouragement for those in the process of choosing a career. Her organization FaithWorks is a local community service non-profit.

"This event is another way for us to talk to students about listening for God's voice and trying to understand what His plans for their future may be," Miller said. "This event will shed a little insight in how to put their plans together."

While this event will be conducted during ACU's traditional Chapel time, students who attend will be given full credit for attending Chapel that day.
